Interactive Relighting of Panoramas
March/April 2001 (vol. 21 no. 2)
pp. 32-41
Due to the simplicity and efficiency of panoramic image representation, it has been successfully applied to Internet applications to provide an immersive illusion within a real or synthetic environment. However, once a scene has been captured as an image, the lighting condition can no longer be adjustable. Since the illumination adjustment is one key capability in computer graphics, the authors describe a panoramic image representation, which allows them to incorporate the illumination information into the panorama. Scenes represented by this representation not just for panning, tilting and zooming, but also for the interactive adjustment of lighting conditions. The authors developed an interactive panoramic viewer to demonstrate the feasibility and applicability of the proposed representation.
