This article is concerned with creating more realistic images of 3D scenes which are moving relative to the viewer at such high speeds that the propagation delay of light signals and other relativistic effects can not be neglected. Creating images of 3D scenes in relativistic motion might have important applications to science-fiction films, computer games, and virtual environments. We shall discuss the following problems: (1) how to determine the visual appearance of a rapidly moving object… Expand
Real-world relativity: image-based special relativistic visualization
TLDR
An image-based method which allows to render high speed flights through real-world scenes filmed by a standard camera and allows interactive viewing of relativistic panoramas and the production of movies which show super-fast travel. Expand
Special Relativistic Visualization by Local Ray Tracing
TLDR
A hybrid rendering technique based on polygon distortion and local ray tracing that facilitates interactive high-quality visualization of multiple objects moving at relativistic speeds in arbitrary directions is introduced. Expand
An Improved Spacetime Ray Tracing System for the Visualization of Relativistic Effects
TLDR
An improved spacetime ray tracing system is developed, which provides a framework for the visualization of spacetime relativistic effects and discovers a number of novel visual effects such as multiple transmissions, omnidirectional reflection, and delayed appearance of shadows. Expand
Searchlight and Doppler effects in the visualization of special relativity: a corrected derivation of the transformation of radiance
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a photo-realistic image of a rapidly moving object is dominated by the searchlight and Doppler effects, and how to incorportate the Dopplers and searchlight effects in the two common techniques of special relativistic visualization, namely ray tracing and polygon rendering is shown.

Relativistic Effects for Time‐Resolved Light Transport
TLDR
The effects of time dilation, light aberration, frequency shift and radiance accumulation are explored by modifying existing models of these relativistic effects to take into account the time‐resolved nature of light propagation. Expand
Visualization of Four-Dimensional Spacetimes
In this thesis, new and improved methods for the visualization of four-dimensional spacetimes are presented. The first part of this thesis deals with the flat spacetime of special relativity. AExpand
Illumination and acceleration in the visualization of special relativity: a comment on fast rendering of relativistic objects
TLDR
It is shown how acceleration can be included in special relativistic visualization by calculating the trajectory of accelerating objects, which is a prerequisite for a physically based camera model, and interaction and animation in special relativity visualization are possible. Expand
Special Relativity in Virtual Reality
TLDR
A reformulation of the problem which allows the treatment of acceleration in real-time and user interaction could be integrated and a virtual reality for special relativity was possible. Expand
Brightness and color of rapidly moving objects: The visual appearance of a large sphere revisited
An object at relativistic speed is seen as both rotated and distorted when it is large or close by so that it subtends a large solid angle. This is a consequence of the aberration effect and isExpand
An Immersive Virtual Environment for Special Relativity
In this paper, an immersive virtual environment is presented which allows the user to virtually explore and experience special relativity, including phenomena such as Lorentz contraction, timeExpand

Casting curved shadows on curved surfaces
TLDR
A simple algorithm is described which utilizes Z-buffer visible surface computation to display shadows cast by objects modelled of smooth surface patches, and is contrasted with a less costly method for casting the shadows of the environment on a single ground plane. Expand
The visual appearance of rapidly moving objects
I would like to draw the attention of physicists to a recent paper by James Terrell in which he does away with an old prejudice held by practically all of us. We all believed that, according toExpand

TLDR
REST-frame simulates a generalized world in Spacetime and gives the fine details implicit in the Special Theory of Relativity that have not yet been made apparent, disclosing the non-intuitive realm of Special Relativity. Expand

TLDR
An innovative ray-tracing simulation algorithm that uses the non-Newtonian Lorentz Transformation to relate measurements of a single event in different inertial coordinate systems (inertial frames) to describe Relativistic Effects in SpaceTime ("REST"). Expand
Time dilation visualization in relativity
TLDR
As the authors introduce the physics of special relativity into ray-tracing and make time to pass as a ray travels through space, they are able to link the spatial and temporal dimensions in a fundamental and consistent way in their simulations, and generate images that reveal theatial and temporal properties of the 4D geometry of spacetime.

TLDR
If techniques for the automatic determination of chiaroscuro with good resolution should prove to be competitive with line drawings, and this is a possibility, machine generated photographs might replace line drawings as the principal mode of graphical communication in engineering and architecture.

Wide-band relativistic Doppler effect visualization
TLDR
In this new method the spectral curves of surface properties and light composition are represented by spline functions of wavelength, which can cover the entire electromagnetic waves bandwidth, and incorporate the thermal radiation of objects into the surface property description. Expand
Invisibility of the Lorentz Contraction
It is shown that, if the apparent directions of objects are plotted as points on a sphere surrounding the observer, the Lorentz transformation corresponds to a conformal transformation on the surfaceExpand
