Towards Hairstyle Reconstruction Using Thermal Imaging

In proceedings of SIGGRAPH ASIA '11: ACM SIGGRAPH ASIA 2011 Sketches (2011), Dez. 2011
 

Abstract

The reconstruction of hairstyles is one of the most challenging tasks in the field of hair modeling. We present a novel technique for generating fiber-based hair models from video sequences captured by a hand-held infrared camera. The major advantage of using thermal imaging lies on the fact that hair is actively re-emitting heat from the scalp and thus several issues of conventional setups illuminating the hairstyle from outside, such as shadowing and anisotropy in reflectance, can be avoided. First promising results indicate the potential of our method.
