In computers, 3D (three-dimensional) means an image that provides the perception of depth. If such images are made interactive and the users become involved with the scene, the experience is described as virtual reality. For viewing and interacting with 3D images, you normally require a special plug-in viewer for your web browser. To gain the experience of virtual reality, more equipment may also be necessary. The process of creating 3D images can be divided into three phases: tessellation, geometry, and rendering. In the first phase of tessellation, models are made of individual objects using linked points that are made into a number of individual polygons or tiles. In the second phase, the polygons are transformed in various ways and subjected to lighting effects. In the third and final stage, the transformed images are rendered into objects with intricate detail.
Digital Blasphemy is one of the most popular websites for 3D computer wallpapers, created by Ryan Bliss and contributors.
