Interactive Techniques for 3-D Shaded Graphics
Light Source Manipulation
These added capabilities coupled with traditional graphic techniques will greatly affect the man-machine interface of the next generation graphic systems.
By the end of the decade, their use will be widespread in such applications as 3-D medical and geophysical data interpretation, CAD/CAM, animation, technical illustration, architecture, and molecular modeling.
