I created this in Spring 2009 for an image processing course.
I start with an sphere, use some matrix transformations to give it the shape of a saucer. Then, I use different lighting settings to give it a metal look. Finally, I use different camera settings and transformations to make it spin.
After that, I cover the figure with a black image and do the above, once more.
Finally, I create some cubes and a pyramid and use some translation and rotation matrices to make the UFO pick-up the blocks and put them on top of the pyramid.
This is a good project if you want to know more about graphics.
