Introductions / 3-D

ExtremeTech 3D Pipeline Tutorial [15 Jun 2003]
"Our goal is to present a series of fairly technical yet approachable articles on 3D graphics technology. We&ll start with the way 3D graphics are created using a multi-step process called a 3D pipeline. We&ll walk down the 3D pipeline, from the first triangle in a scene to the last pixel drawn. We will present some of the math involved in rendering a 3D scene, though the treatment of 3D algorithms will be introductory. (We list a good number of references at the end of this story if you want to dive deeper)."  http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,3973,464440,00.asp  report broken link

Free BBC DV Online Courses [15 Jun 2003]
These online modules and guides are free for you to use. They were originally designed for BBC staff. In publishing them here we have not made many editorial changes to them. This is because they are primarily aimed at anyone who is working for, with or alongside the BBC. For that reason, the modules still contain some specific references to BBC procedures, methods and services.  http://www.bbctraining.co.uk/onlineCourses.asp  report broken link
