Surface Light Field Rendering for Virtual Product Design

In proceedings of The 11th International Conference on Virtual Systems and Multimedia (VSMM 2005), pages 185-188, Oct. 2005

Abstract

Interior and material designers currently refuse to employ Virtual Prototyping software due to potential errors in computer generated images. In this paper we propose real-time rendering of a precomputed global illumination solution including accurate materials, which is stored as an outgoing Surface Light Field (SLF), as a method to improve upon this problem. In addition, suitable SLF compression and computation techniques are presented and the quality of rendered images is demonstrated.
