17 The direction of a vector is written as a single coordinate. 4 Vector A vector is a direction. Vectors are not rendered but they are important because they are required for lighting and animation. To define a vector, a single three axis coordinate is used. This is sufficient, because part of the vector definition is that the origin of the direction is located at 0 0 0 in world space. This allows any single coordinate to represent any direction in world space (Fig. 17). 24 2 CG Basics Fig. 5 Normals Vectors connected to object components for the purpose of identifying their orientation are called normals.

7 Conclusion 7 image on a screen, no amount of knowledge regarding perspective would be of any use. With Pointillism and the pixels it inspired, linear perspective could be used to calculate what an image should look like on a 2D plane, and Pointillism allows the computer to generate an image that could be viewed on a computer screen. These observations and experiments by artists led to key discoveries that had (and are still having) far-reaching results. By themselves, the observations would be of little use if the artist were unable to communicate what they had seen or what caused the effect.
