Image-Based Rendering and Illumination Using Spherical Mosaics
James F. O'Brien
University of California, Berkeley
EECS, Computer Science Division
633 Soda Hall #1776
Berkeley, California 94720 USA

Extending concentric mosaics to spherical mosaics allows greater freedom of movement. Pre-computed diffuse and specular maps provide realistic illumination from high-dynamic- range image data for objects interactively added to the scene.

Image-Based Rendering for Animated Deforming Objects

This IBR technique for making photo-realistic CG animation successfully rendered deformed velvet and fur, which is difficult to synthesize with MBR.

Manifold hopping provides perceptually continuous navigation by using only a small number of strategically sampled manifold mosaics or multiperspective panoramas.

Image-Based Reconstruction of Shift-Variant Materials
Hendrik P. A. Lensch
Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik
Stuhlsatzenhausweg 85
Saarbruecken 66123 GERMANY

This image-based method robustly fits average BRDFs to the different materials of real objects. Shift-variant behavior is modeled by projecting the acquired data into a basis formed by recovered BRDFs.
