3D Imaging System for Rapid Response on Remote Sites
A compact 3D laser imaging system for cultural-heritage applications
that require rapid response on remote sites affected by natural
disasters. Though portability is important, accuracy is preserved in
order to obtain high-quality, realistic 3D reconstruction.

Rendering 3D Objects into Photographs Taken by Uncalibrated Perspective Cameras
This technique for inserting objects into real images taken by uncalibrated cameras is based on new camera-pose estimation algorithms that use projective reconstruction.

Shading and Shadow Casting in Image-Based Rendering Without Geometric Models
A real-time rendering method that changes the shading of image-based objects and casts appropriate
shadows according to the motion of viewpoint or objects and transitions in local lighting.

Image-Based Modeling, Rendering and Lighting in "Fiat Lux"
How image-based modeling, rendering, and lighting were used to create the animation "Fiat Lux"
(SIGGRAPH 99 Electronic Theater). The geometry, appearance, and illumination of the environments
were acquired through digital
photography and augmented with
synthetic objects to create the
