ORIGAMI is a EU-funded IST project with the goal of developing advanced tools and new production techniques for high-quality mixing of real and virtual content for film and TV productions. In particular, the project focuses on pre-production tools for set extension through image-based 3D modelling of environments and object. One key goal of the project is to achieve realtime in-studio previsualisation of the virtual elements (objects and actors) of the extended set. In this paper we illustrate…

Steering actors through a virtual set employing vibro-tactile feedback

Results from an initial pilot study indicate that vibro-tactile feedback is a suitable non-visual aid for interaction that is at least comparable to audio-visual alternatives used in virtual set productions.

A 3D production pipeline for special effects in TV and film

This contribution describes techniques for 3D modelling and sensing of dynamic studio scenes and different visualisation techniques for the production of special effects in an improved production pipeline using a shared 3D database used and edited through the different production stages.

A studio system that supports the production of dynamic 3D content based on a multi-camera approach to capture dynamic scenes in a studio equipped with a chroma-keying facility and provides visualisation tools for planning the production and on-set visualisation is described.

Image Based Interactive Rendering with View Dependent Geometry

A novel approach for interactive rendering of virtual views from real image sequences by combining the concepts of light fields, depth‐compensated image warping and view dependent texture mapping, which can handle large and complex scenes.

Image-Based Multiresolution Implicit Object Modeling

Two image-based 3D modeling methods based on a multiresolution evolution of a volumetric function′s level set are discussed, one of which is steered directly by the texture mismatch between views and the other by the role of the level set implosion.

Calibration of hand-held camera sequences for plenoptic modeling

This work extends the sequential camera tracking of an existing structure-from-motion approach to the calibration of a mesh of viewpoints, and proposes using an uncalibrated hand-held camera only to do this calibration.

Self-Calibration and Metric Reconstruction Inspite of Varying and Unknown Intrinsic Camera Parameters

A theoretical proof is given which shows that the absence of skew in the image plane is sufficient to allow for self-calibration and a method to detect critical motion sequences is proposed.

Multi Viewpoint Stereo from Uncalibrated Video Sequences

An automatic 3D surface modeling system that extracts dense metric 3D surfaces from an uncalibrated video sequence with no restrictions on camera movement and internal camera parameters like zoom are imposed.

Self-calibration and metric reconstruction in spite of varying and unknown internal camera parameters

A self-calibration method is presented which efficiently deals with all kinds of constraints on the internal camera parameters and a practical method is proposed which can retrieve metric reconstruction from image sequences obtained with uncalibrated zooming/focusing cameras.


A fast level-set approach to 2D and 3D reconstruction from unorganized sample points

In this paper we propose a novel algorithm for the reconstruction of surfaces from sets of unorganized sample points, based on the temporal evolution of a volumetric function's level-set. The
