On successful completion of this module students should be able to:
Express a consolidated and extended understanding and knowledge of various image, video and 3D tools, topics and techniques, such as: colour space, image formation, image and video compression, image and video enhancement, image and video editing (filtering, blending etc), video editing (blending, transitions), 3D modeling, 3D positioning, 3D textures, 3D lighting and animation.
Compare, critically evaluate and discuss alternative techniques.
Apply techniques to create a professional output.
The module will form a generic introduction to image, video and 3D processing. It will start with the image formation and compression process. Subsequently several image filtering techniques will be discussed in order to enhance images and the use of a 3D package to create images and animations will be introduced. Then these ideas will be extended to video data. In the workshops practical application of the ideas will be covered.
