    • Animation of dressed virtual humans 

      Kabul, İlknur Kaynar (Bilkent University, 2004)
      In this study, we present a system that enables the simulation of a dressed virtual human with different motion behaviors. The proposed system is composed of three modules: human body motion module, garment design module, ...
    • Cinematic realism and digital special effects in Hollywood cinema 

      Güney, Tolga (Bilkent University, 1996)
      This thesis attempts to understand changing conceptions of realism in entertainment cinema by the emergence of digital special effects as an implication of new modes of production in contemporary Hollywood cinema. It ...
    • Combined filtering and keyframe reduction for motion capture data 

      Önder, Onur (Bilkent University, 2007)
      Two new methods for combined filtering and key-frame reduction of motion capture data are proposed. Filtering of motion capture data is necessary to eliminate any jitter introduced by a motion capture system. Although ...
    • Continuous processing of images through user sketched functional blocks 

      Kaya, Aydın (Bilkent University, 1988)
      An object oriented user interface is developed for interacting with and processing images. The software prepared for this purpose includes image processing functions as well as user friendly interaction tools both of a ...
    • Design and implementation of a tool for teaching programming 

      Göktepe, Mesut (Bilkent University, 1988)
      In this thesis, a survey on computer applications for teaching programming and some graphical programming tools together with their underlying environments has been carried out and a graphical Pascal teaching tool ...
    • Dynamic simulation in virtual environments as an evaluation tool for architectural design 

      Taşlı, Şule (Bilkent University, 1999)
      Prediction and evaluation of future performance of buildings are essential aspects of an efficient design process. This thesis aims to discuss dynamic simulation as a prediction and evaluation tool for architectural ...
