Interactive computation of global illumination is a major challenge in current computer graphics research. Global illumination heavily affects the visual quality of generated images. It is therefore a key attribute for the perception of photo-realistic images. Path tracing is able to simulate the physical behaviour of light using Monte Carlo techniques.(More)
Voxel-based approaches are today’s standard to encode volume data. Recently, directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) were successfully used for compressing sparse voxel scenes as well, but they are restricted to a single bit of (geometry) information per voxel. We present a method to compress arbitrary data, such as colors, normals, or reflectance information. By(More)
We propose a novel framework for photometric stereo (PS) under low-light conditions using uncalibrated near-light illumination. It operates on free-form video sequences captured with a minimalistic and affordable setup. We address issues such as albedo variations, shadowing, perspective projections, and camera noise. Our method uses specular spheres(More)
We present a fast reconstruction filtering method for images generated with Monte Carlo-based rendering techniques. Our approach specializes in reducing global illumination noise in the presence of depth-of-field effects at very low sampling rates and interactive frame rates. We employ edge-aware filtering in the sample space to locally improve outgoing(More)
We propose the computation of a perceptual motion blur in videos. Our technique takes the predicted eye motion into account when watching the video. Compared to traditional motion blur recorded by a video camera our approach results in a perceptual blur that is closer to reality. This postprocess can also be used to simulate different shutter effects or for(More)
We present a new data structure for object space partitioning that can be represented completely implicitly. The bounds of each node in the tree structure are recreated at run-time from the scene objects contained therein. By applying a presorting procedure to the geometry, only a known fraction of the geometry is needed to locate the bounding planes of any(More)
