Our graphics group is one of the best in North America and the largest in Canada. We are active in all areas of graphics, including modeling, rendering, imaging, and animation. Our faculty hold a variety of research and teaching awards. We collaborate locally and internationally with industry and other research institutions. Our research has been used for the visual effects seen in many feature films, including Harry Potter and The Hobbit. It has led to commercialized technology such as the next generation LED-based high dynamic range displays. Our former students and postdocs are highly successful in industry and academia, with recent placements at Pixar, Disney, Cornell, and Stanford University. Our labs house a variety of state of the art equipment, including a motion capture facility, video-camera arrays, a 3D printing facility, and wall-sized displays
