I'm gonna be taking graphics next year and I've been kinda thinking ahead. One of the things we have to do is make either a ray tracer or a rasterizer. However I can find almost no info online about how to actually write a rasterizer. There's a fair amount of info on ray tracers, but I want to do something that hasn't been done too often before (almost everyone writes a ray tracer) There's also the fact that I'm interested in real time rendering, which can be far better done by a rasterizer than a ray tracer...
However... I can find almost no info on them. Is there anyone who can give me some info on them, or possibly a link somewhere with some info on them? I've been toddling around Google for a bit but haven't found anything interesting. And the wikipedia explanation is a little vague.
Any advice greatly appreciated, thanks
Thanks in advance
