Other Key Projects

Gigapixel Image
Urca 152GP (World Record for largest digital photograph, September 2010)
Panorama consisting of 152 billion pixels taken at the top of Sugar Loaf, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Taken in June and released in September of 2010. Collaboration with Rodolfo Lima, Diego Nehab, and Luiz Velho, from IMPA.
  

Corcovado 67GP (World Record for largest digital photograph, July 2010)
Panorama consisting of 67 billion pixels taken from the statue of Christ, The Redeemer, at the top of Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Taken in June and released in July of 2010. Collaboration with Rodolfo Lima, Diego Nehab, and Luiz Velho, from IMPA.
  
Technical Demo
ATI "Screen Space" Screensaver
This screensaver uses fluid flow simulation and parallax occlusion mapping techniques to showcase the ATI Radeon X1900 GPU. Lead programmer; with Daniel Szecket, Eli Turner, Dan Roeger, and Abe Wiley. December 2005-January 2006.
  

ATI "Parthenon" Real-Time Demo
This demo consists of rendering 15 million polygons, derived from a real-world laser capture of the actual Parthenon in Athens, Greece. Image based lighting techniques and a novel LOD algorithm are used to render this dataset in real-time on the Radeon X1800 graphics processor. Project lead; with Eli Turner, John Isidoro, Joshua Barczak, and Jason L. Mitchell. October 2004-October 2005.
  

ATI "Fluid Flow" Screensaver
This screensaver demonstrates the use of the ATI's graphics technology as a general purpose computation platform. The complex mathematical operations required to simulate fluid flow are all computed in real-time on the GPU. Project lead. August 2004-October 2004.
  

ATI "Ruby, the DoubleCross" Real-Time Demo
Through the use of motion captured animation, depth-of-field, realistic image based lighting and dynamic shadows; "DoubleCross" borrows heavily from both gaming and movie genres to create a compelling demo that further raises the expectations for real-time graphics. Shader programmer; with members of ATI's 3D Application Research Group. January 2004-July 2004. Appears on SIGGRAPH 2004 Animation Festival.
