Optimizing photo-consistency in image-based 3D and appearance modeling

Oct 25, 2012

Multi-view stereo usually aims at reconstructing photo-consistent 3D models from images. This is typically achieved by optimizing some photo-consistency measure, relating the reconstructed shape, and possibly a reconstructed appearance, to the input images. In this talk, we consider how to optimize the most intuitive photo-consistency measure, which directly compares input images to images rendered from the reconstructed 3D model. Principled optimization of photo-consistency is shown to be applicable to various 3D modeling scenarios, from the classical multi-view stereo or shape-from-shading settings for objects with Lambertian reflectance properties, to the modeling of surfaces with partly specular reflectance.
