Programming for special effects calls for plenty of easy geometric operations. the obvious strategy to application those is frequently inefficient or numerical risky. This publication describes the easiest techniques to those effortless approaches, delivering the programmer with geometric innovations in a sort that may be without delay included into this system being written. it really is at once acceptable to special effects, but additionally to different programming projects the place geometric operations are required
