    Image-based Rendering

Program Title:

    Electric Garden


    In the past few years, a new method of rendering has received a great deal of attention. This new approach, image-based rendering, uses one or more reference images as the basic primitive in contrast to the geometry used in traditional rendering. Since the reference images may be directly acquired from the environment through photography or video, image- based rendering promises to deliver a level of realism that has, so far, been unobtainable using traditional rendering. In this experience, the user walks though a real-world scene rendered from a set of captured refer- ence images, rather than from traditional geometric models.
