EasyBMPtoAVI Movie Creator
This project uses EasyBMP to read a series of BMP images
and stitches them together as an AVI movie file.
Computer Graphics and Programming Links:
BMP File Format
- This page gives an excellent description of the BMP
file format. It was essential to me when writing this library.
OpenGL Installation Tutorial
- This is the first page I found that gave decent instructions
on downloading, installing, and compiling with OpenGL
and glut in mingw32 and MinGW.
(Notice that his instructions are for MinGW, the
successor to mingw32, but you can use the same process on mingw32.)
He also provides some information on installing MinGW on Windows.
- Download the OpenGL1.1 files from Microsoft necessary in the
process described above.
This is the official site of the industry OpenGL consortium.
Advanced Programming Techniques Using OpenGL
An extensive course of advanced graphics proramming techniques
Tom McReynolds and David Blythe posted at SGI. It uses
OpenGL to make the concepts more concrete.
A useful, brief writeup on Catmull-Rom splines, that allow
cubic interpolations that match function value and tangential
information at knots. Cool.
- I found particular page useful for performing Gaussian
smoothing. As it turns out, Gaussian smoothing is not just
useful for image processing, but also for smoothing data sets
making numerical error less noisy,
making them a bit more accessible to
numerical algorithms, especially those that depend upon
gradients of those data.
Image Processing Learning Resources
- This the homesite of the previous link, and it has
many useful resources.
- This is the currently-maintained site for the MinGW C++ compiler
for windows. They also have a great utility called Msys that
brings useful command-line utilities from Linux to the Windows
I have found that the overclockers community is very
helpful in troubleshooting software and hardware issues, as
well as squeezing the utmost performance from existing computers.
NIST Official Time
Tired of those accusations of being late? See how right
or wrong you are with the official time. (National Institute of
Standards and Technology) Find out if Barnes and Noble
really is kicking you out of their cafe too early!!
Weather Underground #1
- See just how beautiful it is in Irvine, CA.
Weather Underground #2
- See just how miserable it is in Minneapolis, MN.
