Projective Surface Refinement for Free-Viewpoint Video
Gregor Miller, Jonathan Starck and Adrian Hilton
Projective Surface Refinement for Free-Viewpoint Video This paper introduces a novel method of surface refinement for free-viewpoint video of dynamic scenes. Refinement of the view-dependent visual hull (VDVH) is posed as a global problem in projective ray space, incorporating rims as constraints to reduce artefacts. Real time rendering of virtual views in a free-viewpoint video system is achieved using an image+depth representation for each real view.

Presented in London, November 2006 at the Conference on Visual Media Production (CVMP).
