How to Build a Good Light Field Camera
Tags: chapters, Technology

This talk by Chia-Kai Liang, PhD (Architect, Computational Photography at Lytro, Inc.) will describe a light transport framework for understanding the fundamental limits of light field camera resolution. The new framework includes many factors that were not included in existing models. For example, he shows that the 4D spatial-angular sensitivity profile of the photosensor must be considered in the performance analysis. The new framework is used to make many predictions that are closer to the observations and contradict existing models.

Advances in Achieving Photoreal Digital Actors (Video)
Tags: Modeling, Research, Technology

Somewhere between "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within" (2001) and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008), digital actors evolved from talking dolls to lifelike human beings. Today, computer-generated actors are often so realistic that audiences have trouble distinguishing live performers from digital fabrications. How did such a monumental improvement in the realism of CG humans happen over such a short period of time?
