Franklin C. Crow or Frank Crow is a computer scientist who has made important contributions to computer graphics, including some of the first practical spatial anti-aliasing techniques. Crow also proposed the shadow volume technique for generating geometrically accurate shadows. Interactive shadow volume rendering was popularized by the video game Doom 3. [self-published source?]
At age 2, Crow became infected with influenza and barely survived.
