Some useful definitionsGeneral requirements

Straight linesmust appear asstraightlines.• They muststartandend accurately • Lines should haveconstant brightnessalong their length•Lines should drawn rapidly
Line Drawing Algorithms
We are going to analyze how this process is achieved.Rasterization:
Process of determining which pixelsprovide the best approximationto a desired line on the screen.
Scan Conversion:
Combinationof rasterizationand generating the picture inscan lineorder.
