This paper presents an approach to render novel views from input photographs, a task which is commonly referred to as image based rendering. We first compute dense view dependent depthmaps using consistent segmentation. This method jointly computes multiview stereo and segments input photographs while accounting for mixed pixels (matting). We take the images with depth as our input and then propose two rendering algorithms to render novel views using the segmentation, both realtime and off-line… CONTINUE READING
