Graphics Programmer Historically, this title usually belonged to a programmer who developed specialised blitter algorithms and clever optimisations for 2D graphics. Today, however, it almost exclusively applies to programmers who specialise in developing and modifying complex 3D graphic renderers. Some 2D graphics skills have just recently become useful again, though, for developing games for the new generation of cell phones and handheld game consoles. A 3D graphics programmer must have a firm grasp of advanced mathematical concepts such as vector and matrix math, quaternions and linear algebra.
