Image-Based Rendering for Non-Diffuse Synthetic Scenes
Most current image-based rendering methods operate under the assumption that all of the visible surfaces in the scene are opaque ideal diffuse (Lambertian) reflectors. This paper is concerned with image-based rendering of non-diffuse synthetic scenes. We introduce a new family of image-based scene representations and describe corresponding image-based rendering algorithms that are capable of handling general synthetic scenes containing not only diffuse reflectors, but also specular and glossy objects. Our image-based representation is based on layered depth images. It represents simultaneously and separately both view-independent scene information and view-dependent appearance information. The view-dependent information may be either extracted directly from our data-structures, or evaluated procedurally using an image-based analogue of ray tracing. We describe image-based rendering algorithms that recombine the two components together in a manner that produces a good approximation to t...
