Generating free-viewpoint video in outdoor sports environments is currently an unsolved problem due to difficulties in obtaining accurate background segmentation and camera calibration. This paper introduces a technique for the reconstruction of a scene in the presence of these errors. We tackle the issues of reconstruction completeness, and accuracy of surface shape and appearance. We introduce the concept of the conservative visual hull as a technique to improve reconstruction completeness… CONTINUE READING
