Training programme

We all love the flashy side of rendering: from cutting-edge tech presented at GDC to the frontier of science presented in SIGGRAPH Tech Papers. However, we often overlook the nitty-and-gritty part of rendering: understanding the basics, like mipmapping, projection transformation, or the depth test. This Master Class from Peter, ex Rockstar and CD Projekt, will focus on the latest.

Objectives of the training

  • Revisit the core rendering concepts in-depth
  • Explore how understanding them could help you with real-life tasks.
