Image-based rendering for walkthroughs in a virtual environment has many advantages over a geometry-based approach, due to the fast construction of the environment and, photo-realistic rendered results, etc. However, since light field approaches are limited to a closed space, they cannot be directly applied to large and complex street environments.<div></div> Accordingly, the current paper, presents an image-based rendering method that can handle a large-scale scene, thereby, allowing street walkthroughs with light field style rendering. First, the problem of capture configuration is described based on the previous work. Then an efficient sampling configuration of image sequences is presented, and the efficiency of the proposed method demonstrated with several experiments.
