Ray Markov Random Fields for Image-Based 3D Modeling: Model and Efficient Inference
In this paper, we present an approach to multi-view image-based 3D reconstruction by statistically inversing the ray-tracing based image generation process. The proposed algorithm is fast, accurate and does not need any initialization. The geometric representation is a discrete volume divided into voxels, with each voxel associated with two properties: opacity (shape) and color (appearance). The problem is then formulated as inferring each voxel's most probable opacity and color through MAP estimation of the developed Ray Markov Random Fields (RayMRF). RayMRF is constructed with three kinds of cliques: the usual unary and pairwise cliques favoring connected voxel regions, and most importantly ray-cliques modelling the ray-tracing based image generation process. Each ray-clique connects the voxels that the viewing ray passes through. It provides a principled way of modeling the occlusion without approximation. The inference problem involved in the MAP estimation is handled by an o...
