Object shape and reflectance modeling from observation
An object model for computer graphics applications should contain two aspects of information: shape and reflectance properties of the object. A number of techniques have been deve...

Non-linear approximation of reflectance functions
We introduce a new class of primitive functions with non-linear parameters for representing light reflectance functions. The functions are reciprocal, energy-conserving and expres...

View-dependent refinement of progressive meshes
Level-of-detail (LOD) representations are an important tool for realtime rendering of complex geometric environments. The previously introduced progressive mesh representation def...

The visibility skeleton: a powerful and efficient multi-purpose global visibility tool
Many problems in computer graphics and computer vision require accurate global visibility information. Previous approaches have typically been complicated to implement and numeric...

Interactive multiresolution mesh editing
We describe a multiresolution representation for meshes based on subdivision, which is a natural extension of the existing patch-based surface representations. Combining subdivisi...

Multiperspective panoramas for cel animation
We describe a new approach for simulating apparent camera motion through a 3D environment. The approach is motivated by a traditional technique used in 2D cel animation, in which ...

Anatomically based modeling
We describe an improved, anatomically based approach to modeling and animating animals. Underlying muscles, bones, and generalized tissue are modeled as triangle meshes or ellipso...

Metropolis light transport
We present a new Monte Carlo method for solving the light transport problem, inspired by the Metropolis sampling method in computational physics. To render an image, we generate a...
