(b) Differentiate between Random Scan and Raster Scan. Explain random scan display processor with suitable diagram. ( See Answer)

(a) What is clipping? Explain Cohen-Sutherland line clipping algorithm.

(b) Let R be the rectangular window whose lower left-hand corner is at L(-3, 1) and upper right hand corner is at (2,6). Find the end point codes for the following points according to Cohen Sutherland algorithm of the line clipping:
A(-4,2) B(-1, 7) C(-1, 5) D(3,8) E(-2, 3) F(1,2) G(1,-2)
H(3,3) I(-4, 7) J(-2, 10)


(a) Find the general form of transformation N which maps a rectangular window with the extent Wxmin to Wxmax in x direction and Wymin to Wymax in y direction on a rectangular viewport with x extent vxmin to vxmax and y extent vymin to vymax.

(b) Explain the transformation matrices for various 2D transformation in homogeneous coordinates.

(a) Find the complete viewing transformation that maps a window in a world co-ordinates with x extent 1 to 10 and y extent 1 to 10 on to a viewport with x extent ¼ to ¾  and y extent 0 to ½ in normalized device space and then maps to a window with x extent ¼ to ½ and y extent ¼ to ½ in the normalized device space, into a viewport with x extent 1 to 10 y extent 1 to 10 on the physical display device.

(b) Find the normalised transformation N which uses the rectangle A(1,1), B(5,3), C(4,5) and D(0,3) as a window and a normalised device screen as a viewport.
