Animated graphics for Television New Zealand
Degree GrantorUniversity of Canterbury
Degree NameBachelor of Science with Honours
The purpose of this project was to explore methods of expanding the computer graphics facilities available to Television New Zealand particularly in the field of animated graphics. At present, their in house equipment is incapable of supporting many of their requirements, and producers ore often unable to include graphics sequences because of the cost of commercial graphics services. The initial part of the project required research in the field of graphics systems and. their implementation, and also a survey of the requirements and currently available facilities at TVNZ. Following this, a prototype animated graphics system based on University equipment was proposed and is now partly implemented. This report contains a review of the initial research and the factors leading to the major design decisions. It also includes a description of the proposed animation system, with a more detailed explanation of the ports of the system which have now been implemented.
