Title:

    Virtual bokeh generation from a single system of lenses

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    Since bokeh that means a blur or its shape is an attractive effect for  generating natural images, various methods are proposed to syn- thesize bokeh by analyzing rays in the space domain [Cook et al.  1984]. Recently, based on fourier transform of light fields, a method that can treat real images is also proposed [Ng 2005]. However, it is not easy to capture wide and dense light fields in comparison with  ordinary images. In this paper, we propose direct virtual bokeh gen- eration in the frequency domain from acquired multiple differently  focused images without light fields or any depth estimation.
