(arXiv: 1704.07576)
Abstract
Light fields become a popular representation of three dimensional scenes, and there is interest in their processing, resampling, and compression. As those operations often result in loss of quality, there is a need to quantify it. In this work, we collect a new dataset of dense reference and distorted light fields as well as the corresponding quality scores which are scaled in perceptual units. The scores were acquired in a subjective experiment using an interactive light-field viewing setup. The dataset contains typical artifacts that occur in light-field processing chain due to light-field reconstruction, multi-view compression, and limitations of automultiscopic displays. We test a number of existing objective quality metrics to determine how well they can predict the quality of light fields. We find that the existing image quality metrics provide good measures of light-field quality, but require dense reference light- fields for optimal performance. For more complex tasks of comparing two distorted light fields, their performance drops significantly, which reveals the need for new, light-field-specific metrics.

Abstract
Predicting human visual perception of image differences has several applications such as compression, rendering, editing and retargeting. Current approaches however, ignore the fact that the human visual system compensates for geometric transformations, e.g. we see that an image and a rotated copy are identical. Instead, they will report a large, false-positive difference. At the same time, if the transformations become too strong or too spatially incoherent, comparing two images indeed gets increasingly difficult. Between these two extremes, we propose a system to quantify the effect of transformations, not only on the perception of image differences, but also on saliency and motion parallax. To this end, we first fit local homographies to a given optical flow field and then convert this field into a field of elementary transformations such as translation, rotation, scaling, and perspective. We conduct a perceptual experiment quantifying the increase of difficulty when compensating for elementary transformations. Transformation entropy is proposed as a novel measure of complexity in a flow field. This representation is then used for applications, such as comparison of non-aligned images, where transformations cause threshold elevation, and detection of salient transformations.

Abstract
Presenting stereoscopic content on 3D displays is a challenging task, usually requiring manual adjustments. A number of techniques have been developed to aid this process, but they account for binocular disparity of surfaces that are diffuse and opaque only. However, combinations of transparent as well as specular materials are common in the real and virtual worlds, and pose a significant problem. For example, excessive disparities can be created which cannot be fused by the observer. Also, multiple stereo interpretations become possible, e. g., for glass, that both reflects and refracts, which may confuse the observer and result in poor 3D experience. In this work, we propose an efficient method for analyzing and controlling disparities in computer-generated images of such scenes where surface positions and a layer decomposition are available. Instead of assuming a single per-pixel disparity value, we estimate all possibly perceived disparities at each image location. Based on this representation, we define an optimization to find the best per-pixel camera parameters, assuring that all disparities can be easily fused by a human. A preliminary perceptual study indicates, that our approach combines comfortable viewing with realistic depiction of typical specular scenes.

Abstract
This paper studies the presentation of moving stereo images on different display devices. We address three representative issues. First, we propose temporal compensation for the Pulfrich effect found when using anaglyph glasses. Second, we describe, how content-adaptive capture protocols can reduce false motion-in-depth sensation for time-multiplexing based displays. Third, we conclude with a recommendation how to improve rendering of synthetic stereo animations.

Abstract
Beyond the careful design of stereo acquisition equipment and rendering algorithms, disparity post-processing has recently received much attention, where one of the key tasks is to compress the originally large disparity range to avoid viewing discomfort. The perception of dynamic stereo content however, relies on reproducing the full disparity-time volume that a scene point undergoes in motion. This volume can be strongly distorted in manipulation, which is only concerned with changing disparity at one instant in time, even if the temporal coherence of that change is maintained. We propose an optimization to preserve stereo motion of content that was subject to an arbitrary disparity manipulation, based on a perceptual model of temporal disparity changes. Furthermore, we introduce a novel 3D warping technique to create stereo image pairs that conform to this optimized disparity map. The paper concludes with perceptual studies of motion reproduction quality and task performance in a simple game, showing how our optimization can achieve both viewing comfort and faithful stereo motion.

Abstract
Synthetically generating images and video frames of complex 3D scenes using some photo-realistic rendering software is often prone to artifacts and requires expert knowledge to tune the parameters. The manual work required for detecting and preventing artifacts can be automated through objective quality evaluation of synthetic images. Most practical objective quality assessment methods of natural images rely on a ground-truth reference, which is often not available in rendering applications. While general purpose no-reference image quality assessment is a difficult problem, we show in a subjective study that the performance of a dedicated no-reference metric as presented in this paper can match the state-of-the-art metrics that do require a reference. This level of predictive power is achieved exploiting information about the underlying synthetic scene (e.g., 3D surfaces, textures) instead of merely considering color, and training our learning framework with typical rendering artifacts. We show that our method successfully detects various non-trivial types of artifacts such as noise and clamping bias due to insufficient virtual point light sources, and shadow map discretization artifacts. We also briefly discuss an inpainting method for automatic correction of detected artifacts.

Abstract
This work proposes a technique to transfer the material style or mood from a guide source such as an image or video onto a target 3D scene. It formulates the problem as a combinatorial optimization of assigning discrete materials extracted from the guide source to discrete objects in the target 3D scene. The assignment is optimized to fulfill multiple goals: overall image mood based on several image statistics; spatial material organization and grouping as well as geometric similarity between objects that were assigned to similar materials. To be able to use common uncalibrated images and videos with unknown geometry and lighting as guides, a material estimation derives perceptually plausible reflectance, specularity, glossiness, and texture. Finally, results produced by our method are compared to manual material assignments in a perceptual study.

Abstract
In traditional media, such as photography and painting, a cardboard sheet with a cutout (called \emphpassepartout}) is frequently placed on top of an image. One of its functions is to increase the depth impression via the ``looking-through-a-window'' metaphor. This paper shows how an improved 3D~effect can be achieved by using a \emph{virtual passepartout: a 2D framing that selectively masks the 3D shape and leads to additional occlusion events between the virtual world and the frame. We introduce a pipeline to design virtual passepartouts interactively as a simple post-process on RGB images augmented with depth information. Additionally, an automated approach finds the optimal virtual passepartout for a given scene. Virtual passepartouts can be used to enhance depth depiction in images and videos with depth information, renderings, stereo images and the fabrication of physical passepartouts.

Abstract
Human stereo perception of glossy materials is substantially different from the perception of diffuse surfaces: A single point on a diffuse object appears the same for both eyes, whereas it appears different to both eyes on a specular object. As highlights are blurry reflections of light sources they have depth themselves, which is different from the depth of the reflecting surface. We call this difference in depth impression the ``highlight disparity''. Due to artistic motivation, for technical reasons, or because of incomplete data, highlights often have to be depicted on-surface, without any disparity. However, it has been shown that a lack of disparity decreases the perceived glossiness and authenticity of a material. To remedy this contradiction, our work introduces a technique for depiction of glossy materials, which improves over simple on-surface highlights, and avoids the problems of physical highlights. Our technique is computationally simple, can be easily integrated in an existing (GPU) shading system, and allows for local and interactive artistic control.

Abstract
Binocular disparity is an important cue for the human visual system to recognize spatial layout, both in reality and simulated virtual worlds. This paper introduces a perceptual model of disparity for computer graphics that is used to define a metric to compare a stereo image to an alternative stereo image and to estimate the magnitude of the perceived disparity change. Our model can be used to assess the effect of disparity to control the level of undesirable distortions or enhancements (introduced on purpose). A number of psycho-visual experiments are conducted to quantify the mutual effect of disparity magnitude and frequency to derive the model. Besides difference prediction, other applications include compression, and re-targeting. We also present novel applications in form of hybrid stereo images and backward-compatible stereo. The latter minimizes disparity in order to convey a stereo impression if special equipment is used but produces images that appear almost ordinary to the naked eye. The validity of our model and difference metric is again confirmed in a study.

Abstract
In this work, we focus on efficient compression and streaming of frames rendered from a dynamic 3D model. Remote rendering and on-the-fly streaming become increasingly attractive for interactive applications. Data is kept confidential and only images are sent to the client. Even if the client's hardware resources are modest, the user can interact with state-of-the-art rendering applications executed on the server. Our solution focuses on augmented video information, e.g., by depth, which is key to increase robustness with respect to data loss, image reconstruction, and is an important feature for stereo vision and other client-side applications. Two major challenges arise in such a setup. First, the server workload has to be controlled to support many clients, second the data transfer needs to be efficient. Consequently, our contributions are twofold. First, we reduce the server-based computations by making use of sparse sampling and temporal consistency to avoid expensive pixel evaluations. Second, our data-transfer solution takes limited bandwidths into account, is robust to information loss, and compression and decompression are efficient enough to support real-time interaction. Our key insight is to tailor our method explicitly for rendered 3D content and shift some computations on client GPUs, to better balance the server/client workload. Our framework is progressive, scalable, and allows us to stream augmented high-resolution (e.g., HD-ready) frames with small bandwidth on standard hardware.

Abstract
Presenting the variety of high resolution images captured by high-quality devices, or generated on the computer, is challenging due to the limited resolution of current display devices. Our recent work addressed this problem by taking into account human perception. By applying a specific motion to a high-resolution image shown on a low-resolution display device, human eye tracking and integration could be exploited to achieve apparent resolution enhancement. To this end, the high-resolution image is decomposed into a sequence of temporally varying low-resolution images that are displayed at high refresh rates. However, this approach is limited to a specific class of simple or constant movements, i.e. ``panning''. In this work, we generalize this idea to arbitrary motions, as well as to videos with arbitrary motion flow. The resulting image sequences are compared to a range of other down-sampling methods.

Abstract
Numerous image processing and computer graphics methods make use of either explicitly computed strength of image edges, or an implicit edge strength definition that is integrated into their algorithms. In both cases, the end result is highly affected by the computation of edge strength. We address several shortcomings of the widely used gradient magnitude based edge strength model through the computation of a hypothetical human visual system (HVS) response at edge locations. Contrary to gradient magnitude, the resulting ``visual significance'' values account for various HVS mechanisms such as luminance adaptation and visual masking, and are scaled in perceptually linear units that are uniform across images. The visual significance computation is implemented in a fast multi-scale second generation wavelet framework,which we use to demonstrate the differences in image retargeting, HDR image stitching and tone mapping applications with respect to gradient magnitude model. Our results suggest that simple perceptual models provide qualitative improvements on applications utilizing edge strength at the cost of a modest computational burden.

Abstract
High-refresh-rate displays (e.\,g.,~120\,Hz) have recently become available on the consumer market and quickly gain on popularity. One of their aims is to reduce the perceived blur created by moving objects that are tracked by the human eye. However, an improvement is only achieved if the video stream is produced at the same high refresh rate (i.\,e.~120\,Hz). Some devices, such as LCD~TVs, solve this problem by converting low-refresh-rate content (i.\,e.~50\,Hz~PAL) into a higher temporal resolution (i.\,e.~200\,Hz) based on two-dimensional optical flow. In our approach, we will show how rendered three-dimensional images produced by recent graphics hardware can be up-sampled more efficiently resulting in higher quality at the same time. Our algorithm relies on several perceptual findings and preserves the naturalness of the original sequence. A psychophysical study validates our approach and illustrates that temporally up-sampled video streams are preferred over the standard low-rate input by the majority of users. We show that our solution improves task performance on high-refresh-rate displays.

Herzog, R., Eisemann, E., Myszkowski, K., and Seidel, H.-P. 2010. Spatio-Temporal Upsampling on the GPU. Proceedings I3D 2010, ACM.
Abstract
Pixel processing is becoming increasingly expensive for real-time applications due to the complexity of today's shaders and high-resolution framebuffers. However, most shading results are spatially or temporally coherent, which allows for sparse sampling and reuse of neighboring pixel values. This paper proposes a simple framework for spatio-temporal upsampling on modern GPUs. In contrast to previous work, which focuses either on temporal or spatial processing on the GPU, we exploit coherence in both. Our algorithm combines adaptive motion-compensated filtering over time and geometry-aware upsampling in image space. It is robust with respect to high-frequency temporal changes, and achieves substantial performance improvements by limiting the number of recomputed samples per frame. At the same time, we increase the quality of spatial upsampling by recovering missing information from previous frames. This temporal strategy also allows us to ensure that the image converges to a higher quality result.

Abstract
Display devices, more than ever, are finding their ways into electronic consumer goods as a result of recent trends in providing more functionality and user interaction. Combined with the new developments in display technology towards higher reproducible luminance range, the mobility and variation in capability of display devices are constantly increasing. Consequently, in real life usage it is now very likely that the display emission to be distorted by spatially and temporally varying reflections, and the observer's visual system to be not adapted to the particular display that she is viewing at that moment. The actual perception of the display content cannot be fully understood by only considering steady-state illumination and adaptation conditions. We propose an objective method for display visibility analysis formulating the problem as a full-reference image quality assessment problem, where the display emission under ``ideal'' conditions is used as the reference for real-life conditions. Our work includes a human visual system model that accounts for maladaptation and temporal recovery of sensitivity. As an example application we integrate our method to a global illumination simulator and analyze the visibility of a car interior display under realistic lighting conditions.

Banterle, F., Debattista, K., Artusi, A., et al. 2009. High Dynamic Range Imaging and LDR Expansion for Generating HDR Content. EUROGRAPHICS State-of-the-Art Report, Eurographics.
Abstract
In the last few years researches in the field of High Dynamic Range (HDR) Imaging have focused on providing tools for expanding LDR content for the generation of HDR images due to the growing popularity of HDR in applications, such as photography and rendering via Image-Based Lighting, and the imminent arrival of HDR displays to the consumer market. LDR content expansion is required due to the lack of fast and reliable consumer level HDR capture for still images and videos. Furthermore, LDR content expansion, will allow the re-use of legacy LDR stills, videos and LDR applications created, over the last century and more, to be widely available. The use of certain LDR expansion methods, those that are based on the inversion of tone mapping operators, has made it possible to create novel compression algorithms that tackle the problem of the size of HDR content storage, which remains one of the major obstacles to be overcome for the adoption of HDR. These methods are used in conjunction with traditional LDR compression methods and can evolve accordingly. The goal of this report is to provide a comprehensive overview on HDR Imaging, and an in depth review on these emerging topics. Moreover, we are proposing how to classify and to validate them. We will discuss limitations of these methods, and identify remaining challenges for the future.

Abstract
This work will discuss shortcomings of traditional rendering techniques on today's wide-spread LCD screens. The main observation is that 3D renderings often appear blurred when observed on such a display. Although this might seem to be a shortcoming of the hardware, such blur is actually a consequence of the human visual system perceiving such displays.\\ In this work, we introduce a perception-aware rendering technique that is of very low cost, but significantly improves performance, as well as quality. Especially in conjunction with more recent devices, initially conceived for 3D shutter glasses, our approach achieves significant gains. Besides quality, we show that such approaches even improve task-performance which makes it a crucial component for future interactive applications.

Herzog, R., Myszkowski, K., and Seidel, H.-P. 2009. Anisotropic Radiance-Cache Splatting for Efficiently Computing High-Quality Global Illumination with Lightcuts. Computer Graphics Forum (Proc. EUROGRAPHICS), Wiley-Blackwell.
Abstract
Computing global illumination in complex scenes is even with todays computational power a demanding task. In this work we propose a novel irradiance caching scheme that combines the advantages of two state-of-the-art algorithms for high-quality global illumination rendering: \emph{lightcuts}, an adaptive and hierarchical instant-radiosity based algorithm and the widely used (ir)radiance caching algorithm for sparse sampling and interpolation of (ir)radiance in object space. Our adaptive radiance caching algorithm is based on anisotropic cache splatting, which adapts the cache footprints not only to the magnitude of the illumination gradient computed with lightcuts but also to its orientation allowing larger interpolation errors along the direction of coherent illumination while reducing the error along the illumination gradient. Since lightcuts computes the direct and indirect lighting seamlessly, we use a two-layer radiance cache, to store and control the interpolation of direct and indirect lighting individually with different error criteria. In multiple iterations our method detects cache interpolation errors above the visibility threshold of a pixel and reduces the anisotropic cache footprints accordingly. We achieve significantly better image quality while also speeding up the computation costs by one to two orders of magnitude with respect to the well-known photon mapping with (ir)radiance caching procedure.

Abstract
Much research has gone into developing methods for enhancing the contrast of displayed 3D scenes. In the current study, we investigated the perceptual impact of an algorithm recently proposed by Ritschel et al.1 that provides a general technique for enhancing the perceived contrast in synthesized scenes. Their algorithm extends traditional image-based Unsharp Masking to a 3D scene, achieving a scene-coherent enhancement. We conducted a standardized perceptual experiment to test the proposition that a 3D unsharp enhanced scene was superior to the original scene in terms of perceived contrast and preference. Furthermore, the impact of different settings of the algorithm’s main parameters enhancement-strength (¸) and gradient size (¾) were studied in order to provide an estimate of a reasonable parameter space for the method. All participants preferred a clearly visible enhancement over the original, non-enhanced scenes and the setting for objectionable enhancement was far above the preferred settings. The effect of the gradient size ¾ was negligible. The general pattern found for the parameters provides a useful guideline for designers when making use of 3D Unsharp Masking: as a rule of thumb they can easily determine the strength for which they start to perceive an enhancement and use twice this value for a good effect. Since the value for objectionable results was twice as large again, artifacts should not impose restrictions on the applicability of this rule.

Abstract
Glare is a consequence of light scattered within the human eye when looking at bright light sources. This effect can be exploited for tone mapping since adding glare to the depiction of high-dynamic range (HDR) imagery on a low-dynamic range (LDR) medium can dramatically increase perceived contrast. Even though most, if not all, subjects report perceiving glare as a bright pattern that fluctuates in time, up to now it has only been modeled as a static phenomenon. We argue that the temporal properties of glare are a strong means to increase perceived brightness and to produce realistic and attractive renderings of bright light sources. Based on the anatomy of the human eye, we propose a model that enables real-time simulation of dynamic glare on a GPU. This allows an improved depiction of HDR images on LDR media for interactive applications like games, feature films, or even by adding movement to initially static HDR images. By conducting psychophysical studies, we validate that our method improves perceived brightness and that dynamic glare-renderings are often perceived as more attractive depending on the chosen scene.

Abstract
The diversity of display technologies and introduction of high dynamic range imagery introduces the necessity of comparing images of radically different dynamic ranges. Current quality assessment metrics are not suitable for this task, as they assume that both reference and test images have the same dynamic range. Image fidelity measures employed by a majority of current metrics, based on the difference of pixel intensity or contrast values between test and reference images, result in meaningless predictions if this assumption does not hold. We present a novel image quality metric capable of operating on an image pair where both images have arbitrary dynamic ranges. Our metric utilizes a model of the human visual system, and its central idea is a new definition of visible distortion based on the detection and classification of visible changes in the image structure. Our metric is carefully calibrated and its performance is validated through perceptual experiments. We demonstrate possible applications of our metric to the evaluation of direct and inverse tone mapping operators as well as the analysis of the image appearance on displays with various characteristics.

Abstract
Currently 3D animation rendering and video compression are completely independent processes even if rendered frames are streamed on-the-fly within a client-server platform. In such scenario, which may involve time-varying transmission bandwidths and different display characteristics at the client side, dynamic adjustment of the rendering quality to such requirements can lead to a better use of server resources. In this work, we present a framework where the renderer and MPEG codec are coupled through a straightforward interface that provides precise motion vectors from the rendering side to the codec and perceptual error thresholds for each pixel in the opposite direction. The perceptual error thresholds take into account bandwidth-dependent quantization errors resulting from the lossy compression as well as image content-dependent luminance and spatial contrast masking. The availability of the discrete cosine transform (DCT) coefficients at the codec side enables to use advanced models of the human visual system (HVS) in the perceptual error threshold derivation without incurring any significant cost. Those error thresholds are then used to control the rendering quality and make it well aligned with the compressed stream quality. In our prototype system we use the lightcuts technique developed by Walter et al., which we enhance to handle dynamic image sequences, and an MPEG-2 implementation. Our results clearly demonstrate many advantages of coupling the rendering with video compression in terms of faster rendering. Furthermore, temporally coherent rendering leads to a reduction of temporal artifacts.

Abstract
The main goal of High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) is precise reproduction of real world appearance in terms of intensity levels and color gamut at all stages of image and video processing from acquisition to display. In our work, we investigate the problem of lossy HDR image and video compression and provide a number of novel solutions, which are optimized for storage efficiency or backward compatibility with existing compression standards. To take advantage of HDR information even for traditional low-dynamic range displays, we design tone mapping algorithms, which adjust HDR contrast ranges in a scene to those available in typical display devices.

Abstract
As new displays and cameras offer enhanced color capabilities, there is a need to extend the precision of digital content. High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging encodes images and video with higher than normal 8 bit-per-color-channel precision, enabling representation of the complete color gamut and the full visible range of luminance.However, to realize transition from the traditional toHDRimaging, it is necessary to develop imaging algorithms that work with the high-precision data. Tomake such algorithms effective and feasible in practice, it is necessary to take advantage of the limitations of the human visual system by aligning the data shortcomings to those of the human eye, thus limiting storage and processing precision. Therefore, human visual perception is the key component of the solutions we discuss in this book. This book presents a complete pipeline for HDR image and video processing from acquisition, through compression and quality evaluation, to display. At the HDR image and video acquisition stage specialized HDR sensors or multi-exposure techniques suitable for traditional cameras are discussed. Then, we present a practical solution for pixel values calibration in terms of photometric or radiometric quantities, which are required in some technically oriented applications. Also, we cover the problem of efficient image and video compression and encoding either for storage or transmission purposes, including the aspect of backward compatibility with existing formats. Finally, we review existing HDR display technologies and the associated problems of image contrast and brightness adjustment. For this purpose tone mapping is employed to accommodate HDR content to LDR devices. Conversely, the so-called inverse tone mapping is required to upgrade LDR content for displaying on HDR devices. We overview HDR-enabled image and video quality metrics, which are needed to verify algorithms at all stages of the pipeline. Additionally, we cover successful examples of the HDR technology applications, in particular, in computer graphics and computer vision. The goal of this book is to present all discussed components of the HDR pipeline with the main focus on video. For some pipeline stages HDR video solutions are either not well established or do not exist at all, in which case we describe techniques for single HDR images. In such cases we attempt to select the techniques, which can be extended into temporal domain. Whenever needed, relevant background information on human perception is given, which enables better understanding of the design choices behind the discussed algorithms and HDR equipment.

Abstract
This paper presents a quick and simple method for converting complex images and video to perceptually accurate greyscale versions. We use a two-step approach first to globally assign grey values and determine colour ordering, then second, to locally enhance the greyscale to reproduce the original contrast. Our global mapping is image independent and incorporates the Helmholtz-Kohlrausch colour appearance effect for predicting differences between isoluminant colours. Our multiscale local contrast enhancement reintroduces lost discontinuities only in regions that insufficiently represent original chromatic contrast. All operations are restricted so that they preserve the overall image appearance, lightness range and differences, colour ordering, and spatial details, resulting in perceptually accurate achromatic reproductions of the colour original.

Abstract
We present a novel framework for efficiently computing the indirect illumination in diffuse and moderately glossy scenes using density estimation techniques. A vast majority of existing global illumination approaches either quickly computes an approximate solution, which may not be adequate for previews, or performs a much more time-consuming computation to obtain high-quality results for the indirect illumination. Our method improves photon density estimation, which is an approximate solution, and leads to significantly better visual quality in particular for complex geometry, while only slightly increasing the computation time. We perform direct splatting of photon rays, which allows us to use simpler search data structures. Our novel lighting computation is derived from basic radiometric theory and requires only small changes to existing photon splatting approaches. Since our density estimation is carried out in ray space rather than on surfaces, as in the commonly used photon mapping algorithm, the results are more robust against geometrically incurred sources of bias. This holds also in combination with final gathering where photon mapping often overestimates the illumination near concave geometric features. In addition, we show that our splatting technique can be extended to handle moderately glossy surfaces and can be combined with traditional irradiance caching for sparse sampling and filtering in image space.

Abstract
We present a novel framework for efficiently computing the indirect illumination in diffuse and moderately glossy scenes using density estimation techniques. Many existing global illumination approaches either quickly compute an overly approximate solution or perform an orders of magnitude slower computation to obtain high-quality results for the indirect illumination. The proposed method improves photon density estimation and leads to significantly better visual quality in particular for complex geometry, while only slightly increasing the computation time. We perform direct splatting of photon rays, which allows us to use simpler search data structures. Since our density estimation is carried out in ray space rather than on surfaces, as in the commonly used photon mapping algorithm, the results are more robust against geometrically incurred sources of bias. This holds also in combination with final gathering where photon mapping often overestimates the illumination near concave geometric features.

Abstract
We address the problem of communicating contrasts in images degraded with respect to their original due to processing with computer graphics algorithms. Such degradation can happen during the tone mapping of high dynamic range images, or while rendering scenes with low contrast shaders or with poor lighting. Inspired by a family of known perceptual illusions: Craik-O'Brien-Cornsweet, we enhance contrasts by modulating brightness at the edges to create countershading profiles. We generalize unsharp masking by coupling it with a multi-resolution local contrast metric to automatically create the countershading profiles from the sub-band components which are individually adjusted to each corrected feature to best enhance contrast with respect to the reference. Additionally, we employ a visual detection model to assure that our enhancements are not perceived as objectionable halo artifacts. The overall appearance of images remains mostly unchanged and the enhancement is achieved within the available dynamic range. We use our method to post-correct tone mapped images and improve images using their depth information.

Mantiuk, R., Krawczyk, G., Myszkowski, K., and Seidel, H.-P. 2007. High Dynamic Range Image and Video Compression - Fidelity Matching Human Visual Performance. IEEE International Conference on Image Processing 2007, ICIP 2007. - Vol. 1, IEEE.
Abstract
Vast majority of digital images and video material stored today can capture only a fraction of visual information visible to the human eye and does not offer sufficient quality to fully exploit capabilities of new display devices. High dynamic range (HDR) image and video formats encode the full visible range of luminance and color gamut, thus offering ultimate fidelity, limited only by the capabilities of the human eye and not by any existing technology. In this paper we demonstrate how existing image and video compression standards can be extended to encode HDR content efficiently. This is achieved by a custom color space for encoding HDR pixel values that is derived from the visual performance data. We also demonstrate how HDR image and video compression can be designed so that it is backward compatible with existing formats.

Abstract
A number of successful tone mapping operators for contrast compression have been proposed due to the need to visualize high dynamic range (HDR) images on low dynamic range (LDR) devices. They were inspired by fields as diverse as image processing, photographic practice, and modeling of the human visual systems (HVS). The variety of approaches calls for a systematic perceptual evaluation of their performance. We conduct a psychophysical experiment based on a direct comparison between the appearance of real-world scenes and HDR images of these scenes displayed on an LDR monitor. In our experiment, HDR images are tone mapped by seven existing tone mapping operators. The primary interest of this psychophysical experiment is to assess the differences in how tone mapped images are perceived by human observers and to find out which attributes of image appearance account for these differences when tone mapped images are compared directly with their corresponding real-world scenes rather than with each other. The human subjects rate image naturalness, overall contrast, overall brightness, and detail reproduction in dark and bright image regions with respect to the corresponding real-world scene. The results indicate substantial differences in perception of images produced by individual tone mapping operators. We observe a clear distinction between global and local operators in favor of the latter, and we classify the tone mapping operators according to naturalness and appearance attributes.

Abstract
In this report we describe the details of the backward compatible high dynamic range (HDR) video compression algorithm. The algorithm is designed to facilitate a smooth transition from standard low dynamic range (LDR) video to high fidelity high dynamic range content. The HDR and the corresponding LDR video frames are decorrelated and then compressed into a single MPEG stream, which can be played on both existing DVD players and HDR-enabled devices.

Abstract
An anchoring theory of lightness perception by Gilchrist et al. [1999] explains many characteristics of human visual system such as lightness constancy and its spectacular failures which are important in the perception of images. The principal concept of this theory is the perception of complex scenes in terms of groups of consistent areas (frameworks). Such areas, following the gestalt theorists, are defined by the regions of common illumination. The key aspect of the image perception is the estimation of lightness within each framework through the anchoring to the luminance perceived as white, followed by the computation of the global lightness. In this paper we provide a computational model for automatic decomposition of HDR images into frameworks. We derive a tone mapping operator which predicts lightness perception of the real world scenes and aims at its accurate reproduction on low dynamic range displays. Furthermore, such a decomposition into frameworks opens new grounds for local image analysis in view of human perception.

Abstract
Most common image and video formats have been designed to work with existing output devices, like LCD or CRT monitors. As display technology makes progress, these formats no longer represent the data that new devices can display. Therefore a shift towards higher precision image and video formats is imminent. To overcome limitations of common image and video formats, such as JPEG, PNG or MPEG, we propose a novel color space, which can accommodate an extended dynamic range and guarantees the precision that is below the visibility threshold. The proposed color space, which is derived from contrast detection data, can represent the full range of luminance values and the complete color gamut that is visible to the human eye. We show that only minor changes are required to the existing encoding algorithms to accommodate the new color space and therefore greatly enhance information content of the visual data. We demonstrate this with two compression algorithms for High Dynamic Range (HDR) visual data: for static images and for video. We argue that the proposed HDR representation is a simple and universal way to encode visual data independent of the display or capture technology.

Abstract
Image processing often involves an image transformation into a domain that is better correlated with visual perception, such as the wavelet domain, image pyramids, multi-scale contrast representations, contrast in retinex algorithms, and chroma, lightness and colorfulness predictors in color appearance models. Many of these transformations are not ideally suited for image processing that significantly modifies an image. For example, the modification of a single band in a multi-scale model leads to an unrealistic image with severe halo artifacts. Inspired by gradient domain methods we derive a framework that imposes constraints on the entire set of contrasts in an image for a full range of spatial frequencies. This way, even severe image modifications do not reverse the polarity of contrast. The strengths of the framework are demonstrated by aggressive contrast enhancement and a visually appealing tone mapping which does not introduce artifacts. Additionally, we perceptually linearize contrast magnitudes using a custom transducer function. The transducer function has been derived especially for the purpose of HDR images, based on the contrast discrimination measurements for high contrast stimuli.

Abstract
To embrace the imminent transition from traditional low-contrast video (LDR) content to superior high dynamic range (HDR) content, we propose a novel backward compatible HDR video compression (HDR~MPEG) method. We introduce a compact reconstruction function that is used to decompose an HDR video stream into a residual stream and a standard LDR stream, which can be played on existing MPEG decoders, such as DVD players. The reconstruction function is finely tuned to the content of each HDR frame to achieve strong decorrelation between the LDR and residual streams, which minimizes the amount of redundant information. The size of the residual stream is further reduced by removing invisible details prior to compression using our HDR-enabled filter, which models luminance adaptation, contrast sensitivity, and visual masking based on the HDR content. Designed especially for DVD movie distribution, our HDR~MPEG compression method features low storage requirements for HDR content resulting in a 30\% size increase to an LDR video sequence. The proposed compression method does not impose restrictions or modify the appearance of the LDR or HDR video. This is important for backward compatibility of the LDR stream with current DVD appearance, and also enables independent fine tuning, tone mapping, and color grading of both streams.

Abstract
High Dynamic Range (HDR) images capture the full range of luminance present in real world scenes, and unlike Low Dynamic Range (LDR) images, can simultaneously contain detailed information in the deepest of shadows and the brightest of light sources. For display or aesthetic purposes, it is often necessary to perform tone mapping, which creates LDR depictions of HDR images at the cost of contrast information loss. The purpose of this work is two-fold: to analyze a displayed LDR image against its original HDR counterpart in terms of perceived contrast distortion, and to enhance the LDR depiction with perceptually driven colour adjustments to restore the original HDR contrast information. For analysis, we present a novel algorithm for the characterization of tone mapping distortion in terms of observed loss of global contrast, and loss of contour and texture details. We classify existing tone mapping operators accordingly. We measure both distortions with perceptual metrics that enable the automatic and meaningful enhancement of LDR depictions. For image enhancement, we identify artistic and photographic colour techniques from which we derive adjustments that create contrast with colour. The enhanced LDR image is an improved depiction of the original HDR image with restored contrast information.

Abstract
We conduct a series of experiments to investigate the desired properties of a tone mapping operator (TMO) and to design such an operator based on subjective data. We propose a novel approach to the tone mapping problem, in which the tone mapping is determined by the data from subjective experiments, rather than an image processing algorithm or a visual model. To collect such data, a series of experiments are conducted in which the subjects adjust three generic TMO parameters: brightness, contrast and color saturation. In two experiments, the subjects are to find a) the most preferred image without a reference image and b) the closest image to the real-world scene which the subjects are confronted with. The purpose of these experiments is to collect data for two rendering goals of a TMO: rendering the most preferred image and preserving the fidelity with the real world scene. The data provide an assessment for the most intuitive control over the tone mapping parameters. Unlike most of the researched TMOs that focus on rendering for standard low dynamic range monitors, we consider a broad range of potential displays, each offering different dynamic range and brightness. We simulate capabilities of such displays on a high dynamic range (HDR) monitor. This lets us address the question of whether tone mapping is needed for HDR displays.

Abstract
We present an interactive system for fully dynamic scene lighting using captured high dynamic range (HDR) video environment maps. The key component of our system is an algorithm for efficient decomposition of HDR video environment map captured over hemisphere into a set of representative directional light sources, which can be used for the direct lighting computation with shadows using graphics hardware. The resulting lights exhibit good temporal coherence and their number can be adaptively changed to keep a constant framerate while good spatial distribution (stratification) properties are maintained. We can handle a large number of light sources with shadows using a novel technique which reduces the cost of BRDF-based shading and visibility computations. We demonstrate the use of our system in a mixed reality application in which real and synthetic objects are illuminated by consistent lighting at interactive framerates.

Abstract
Tremendous progress in the development and accessibility of high dynamic range (HDR) technology that has happened just recently results in fast proliferation of HDR synthetic image sequences and captured HDR video. When properly processed, such HDR data can lead to very convincing and realistic results even when presented on traditional low dynamic range (LDR) display devices. This requires real-time local contrast compression (tone mapping) with simultaneous modeling of important in HDR image perception effects such as visual acuity, glare, day and night vision. We propose a unified model to include all those effects into a common computational framework, which enables an efficient implementation on currently available graphics hardware. We develop a post processing module which can be added as the final stage of any real-time rendering system, game engine, or digital video player, which enhances the realism and believability of displayed image streams.

Abstract
New imaging and rendering systems commonly use physically accurate lighting information in the form of high-dynamic range (HDR) images and video. HDR images contain actual colorimetric or physical values, which can span 14 orders of magnitude, instead of 8-bit renderings, found in standard images. The additional precision and quality retained in HDR visual data is necessary to display images on advanced HDR display devices, capable of showing contrast of 50,000:1, as compared to the contrast of 700:1 for LCD displays. With the development of high-dynamic range visual techniques comes a need for an automatic visual quality assessment of the resulting images. In this paper we propose several modifications to the Visual Difference Predicator (VDP). The modifications improve the prediction of perceivable differences in the full visible range of luminance and under the adaptation conditions corresponding to real scene observation. The proposed metric takes into account the aspects of high contrast vision, like scattering of the light in the optics (OTF), nonlinear response to light for the full range of luminance, and local adaptation. To calibrate our HDR~VDP we perform experiments using an advanced HDR display, capable of displaying the range of luminance that is close to that found in real scenes.

Abstract
In this work we propose a framework for image processing in a visual response space, in which contrast values directly correlate with their visibility in an image. Our framework involves a transformation of an image from luminance space to a pyramid of low-pass contrast images and then to the visual response space. After modifying response values, the transformation can be reversed to produce the resulting image. To predict the visibility of suprathreshold contrast, we derive a transducer function for the full range of contrast levels that can be found in High Dynamic Range images. We show that a complex contrast compression operation, which preserves textures of small contrast, is reduced to a linear scaling in the proposed visual response space.

Abstract
A number of successful tone mapping operators for contrast compression have been proposed due to the need to visualize high dynamic range (HDR) images on low dynamic range devices. They were inspired by Øelds as diverse as image processing, photographic practice, and modeling of the human visual systems (HVS). The variety of approaches calls for a systematic perceptual evaluation of their performance. We conduct a psychophysical experiment based on a direct comparison between the appearance of real-world scenes and HDR images of these scenes displayed on a low dynamic range monitor. In our experiment, HDR images are tone mapped by seven existing tone mapping operators. The primary interest of this psychophysical experiment is to assess the diÆerences in how tone mapped images are perceived by human observers and to Ønd out which attributes of image appearance account for these diÆerences when tone mapped images are compared directly with their corresponding real-world scenes rather than with each other. The human subjects rate image naturalness, overall contrast, overall brightness, and detail reproduction in dark and bright image regions with respect to the corresponding real-world scene. The results indicate substantial diÆerences in perception of images produced by individual tone mapping operators. We observe a clear distinction between global and local operators in favor of the latter, and we classify the tone mapping operators according to naturalness and appearance attributes.ce attributes.

Abstract
Global illumination dramatically improves realistic appearance of rendered scenes, but usually it is neglected in VR systems due to its high costs. In this work we present an efficient global illumination solution specifically tailored for those CAVE applications, which require an immediate response for dynamic light changes and allow for free motion of the observer, but involve scenes with static geometry. As an application example we choose the car interior modeling under free driving conditions. We illuminate the car using dynamically changing High Dynamic Range (HDR) environment maps and use the Precomputed Radiance Transfer (PRT) method for the global illumination computation. We leverage the PRT method to handle scenes with non-trivial topology represented by complex meshes. Also, we propose a hybrid of PRT and final gathering approach for high-quality rendering of objects with complex Bi-directional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF). We use this method for predictive rendering of the navigation LCD panel based on its measured BRDF. Since the global illumination computation leads to HDR images we propose a tone mapping algorithm tailored specifically for the CAVE. We employ head tracking to identify the observed screen region and derive for it proper luminance adaptation conditions, which are then used for tone mapping on all walls in the CAVE. We distribute our global illumination and tone mapping computation on all CPUs and GPUs available in the CAVE, which enables us to achieve interactive performance even for the costly final gathering approach.

Ershov, S., Durikovic, R., Kolchin, K., and Myszkowski, K. 2004. Reverse engineering approach to appearance-based design of metallic and pearlescent paints. The Visual Computer 20.
Abstract
We propose a new approach to interactive design of metallic and pearlescent coatings, such as automotive paints and plastic finishes of electronic appliances. This approach includes solving the inverse problem, that is, finding pigment composition of a paint from its bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) based on a simple paint model. The inverse problem is solved by two consecutive optimizations calculated in realtime on a contemporary PC. Such reverse engineering can serve as a starting point for subsequent design of new paints in terms of appearance attributes that are directly connected to the physical parameters of our model. This allows the user to have a paint composition in parallel with the appearance being designed.

Abstract
Due to rapid technological progress in high dynamic range (HDR) video capture and display, the efficient storage and transmission of such data is crucial for the completeness of any HDR imaging pipeline. We propose a new approach for inter-frame encoding of HDR video, which is embedded in the well-established MPEG-4 video compression standard. The key component of our technique is luminance quantization that is optimized for the contrast threshold perception in the human visual system. The quantization scheme requires only 10--11 bits to encode 12 orders of magnitude of visible luminance range and does not lead to perceivable contouring artifacts. Besides video encoding, the proposed quantization provides perceptually-optimized luminance sampling for fast implementation of any global tone mapping operator using a lookup table. To improve the quality of synthetic video sequences, we introduce a coding scheme for discrete cosine transform (DCT) blocks with high contrast. We demonstrate the capabilities of HDR video in a player, which enables decoding, tone mapping, and applying post-processing effects in real-time. The tone mapping algorithm as well as its parameters can be changed interactively while the video is playing. We can simulate post-processing effects such as glare, night vision, and motion blur, which appear very realistic due to the usage of HDR data.

We propose a new approach for inter-frame encoding of HDR video, which is embedded in the well-established MPEG-4 video compression standard. The key component of our technique is luminance quantization that is optimized for the contrast threshold perception in the human visual system. The quantization scheme requires only 10--11 bits to encode 12 orders of magnitude of visible luminance range and does not lead to perceivable contouring artifacts. Besides video encoding, the proposed quantization provides perceptually-optimized luminance sampling for fast implementation of any global tone mapping operator using a lookup table.

Abstract
Since new imaging and rendering systems commonly use physically accurate lighting information in the form of High-Dynamic Range data, there is a need for an automatic visual quality assessment of the resulting images. In this work we extend the Visual Difference Predictor (VDP) developed by Daly to handle HDR data. This let us predict if a human observer is able to perceive differences for a pair of HDR images under the adaptation conditions corresponding to the real scene observation.

Abstract
Efficient global illumination computation in dynamically changing environments is an important practical problem. In high-quality animation rendering costly "final gathering" technique is commonly used. We extend this technique into temporal domain by exploiting coherence between the subsequent frames. For this purpose we store previously computed incoming radiance samples and refresh them evenly in space and time using some aging criteria. The approach is based upon a two-pass photon mapping algorithm with irradiance cache, but it can be applied also in other gathering methods. The algorithm significantly reduces the cost of expensive indirect lighting computation and suppresses temporal aliasing with respect to the state of the art frame-by-frame rendering techniques.

Abstract
In this paper we propose an efficient algorithm for handling strong secondary light sources within the photon mapping framework. We introduce an additional photon map as an implicit representation of such light sources. At the rendering stage this map is used for the explicit sampling of strong indirect lighting in a similar way as it is usually performed for primary light sources. Our technique works fully automatically, improves the computation performance, and leads to a better image quality than traditional rendering approaches.

Abstract
Photon tracing and density estimation are well established techniques in global illumination computation and rendering of high-quality animation sequences. Using traditional density estimation techniques it is difficult to remove stochastic noise inherent for photon-based methods while avoiding overblurring lighting details. In this paper we investigate the use of bilateral filtering for lighting reconstruction based on the local density of photon hit points. Bilateral filtering is applied in spatio-temporal domain and provides control over the level-of-details in reconstructed lighting. All changes of lighting below this level are treated as stochastic noise and are suppressed. Bilateral filtering proves to be efficient in preserving sharp features in lighting which is in particular important for high-quality caustic reconstruction. Also, flickering between subsequent animation frames is substantially reduced due to extending bilateral filtering into temporal domain.

Global illumination algorithms are regarded as computationally intensive. This cost is a practical problem when producing animations or when interactions with complex models are required. Several algorithms have been proposed to address this issue. Roughly, two families of methods can be distinguished. The first one aims at providing interactive feedback for lighting design applications. The second one gives higher priority to the quality of results, and therefore relies on offline computations. Recently, impressive advances have been made in both categories. In this report, we present a survey and classification of the most up-to-date of these methods.

Abstract
A tone mapping algorithm for displaying high contrast scenes was designed on the basis of the results of experimental tests using human subjects. Systematic perceptual evaluation of several existing tone mapping techniques revealed that the most ``natural'' appearance was determined by the presence in the output image of detailed scenery features often made visible by limiting contrast and by properly reproducing brightness. Taking these results into account, we developed a system to produce images close to the ideal preference point for high dynamic range input image data. Of the algorithms that we tested, only the Retinex algorithm was capable of retrieving detailed scene features hidden in high luminance areas while still preserving a good contrast level. This paper presents changes made to Retinex algorithm for processing high dynamic range images, and a further integration of the Retinex with specialized tone mapping algorithms that enables the production of images that appear as similar as possible to the viewer's perception of actual scenes.

Abstract
We propose a fast, high quality tone mapping technique to display high contrast images on devices with limited dynamic range of luminance values. The method is based on logarithmic compression of luminance values, imitating the human response to light. A bias power function is introduced to adaptively vary logarithmic bases, resulting in good preservation of details and contrast. To improve contrast in dark areas, changes to the gamma correction procedure are proposed. Our adaptive logarithmic mapping technique is capable of producing perceptually tuned images with high dynamic content and works at interactive speeds. We demonstrate a successful application of our technique to a high dynamic range video player which enables to adjust optimal viewing conditions for any kind of display while taking into account the user preferences concerning brightness, contrast compression, and detail reproduction.

The method is based on logarithmic compression of luminance values, imitating the human response to light. A bias power function is introduced to adaptively vary logarithmic bases, resulting in good preservation of details and contrast. To improve contrast in dark areas, changes to the gamma correction procedure are proposed. Our adaptive logarithmic mapping technique is capable of producing perceptually tuned images with high dynamic content and works at interactive speeds. We demonstrate a successful application of our technique to a high dynamic range video player which enables to adjust optimal viewing conditions for any kind of display while taking into account the user preferences concerning brightness, contrast compression, and detail reproduction. %B EUROGRAPHICS 2003 (EUROGRAPHICS-03) : the European Association for Computer Graphics, 24th Annual Conference %P 419 - 426 %I Blackwell %B Computer Graphics Forum

Abstract
Producing high quality animations featuring rich object appearance and compelling lighting effects is very time consuming using traditional frame-by-frame rendering systems. In this paper we present a rendering architecture for computing multiple frames at once by exploiting the coherence between image samples in the temporal domain. For each sample representing a given point in the scene we update its view-dependent components for each frame and add its contribution to pixels identified through the compensation of camera and object motion. This leads naturally to a high quality motion blur and significantly reduces the cost of illumination computations. The required visibility information is provided using a custom ray tracing acceleration data structure for multiple frames simultaneously. We demonstrate that precise and costly global illumination techniques such as bidirectional path tracing become affordable in this rendering architecture.

Abstract
Seven tone mapping methods currently available to display high dynamic range images were submitted to perceptual evaluation in order to find the attributes most predictive of the success of a robust all-around tone mapping algorithm. The two most salient Stimulus Space dimensions underlying the perception of a set of images produced by six of the tone mappings were revealed using INdividual Differences SCALing (INDSCAL) analysis; and an ideal preference point within the INDSCAL-derived Stimulus Space was determined for a group of 11 observers using PREFerence MAPping (PREFMAP) analysis. Interpretation of the INDSCAL results was aided by pairwise comparisons of images that led to an ordering of the images according to which were more or less natural looking.

Abstract
Rendering of high quality animations with global illumination effects is very costly using traditional techniques designed for static scenes. In this paper we present an extension of the photon mapping algorithm to handle dynamic environments. First, for each animation segment the static irradiance cache is computed only once for the scene with all dynamic objects removed. Then, for each frame, the dynamic objects are inserted and the irradiance cache is updated locally in the scene regions whose lighting is strongly affected by the objects. In the remaining scene regions the photon map is used to correct the irradiance values in the static cache. As a result the overall animation rendering efficiency is significantly improved and the temporal aliasing is reduced.

Abstract
Realistic modeling and high-performance rendering of cloth and clothing is a challenging problem. Often these materials are seen at distances where individual stitches and knits can be made out and need to be accounted for. Modeling of the geometry at this level of detail fails due to sheer complexity, while simple texture mapping techniques do not produce the desired quality. In this paper, we describe an efficient and realistic approach that takes into account view-dependent effects such as small displacements causing occlusion and shadows, as well as illumination effects. The method is efficient in terms of memory consumption, and uses a combination of hardware and software rendering to achieve high performance. It is conceivable that future graphics hardware will be flexible enough for full hardware rendering of the proposed method.

Abstract
The goal of this study is to develop a complete set of data characterizing geometry, luminaires, and surfaces of a non-trivial existing environment for testing global illumination and rendering techniques. This paper briefly discusses the process of data acquisition. Also, the results of experiments on evaluating lighting simulation accuracy, and rendering fidelity for a Density Estimation Particle Tracing algorithm are presented. The importance of using the BRDF of surfaces in place of the more commonly used specular and diffuse reflectance coefficients is investigated for the test scene. The results obtained are contrasted with an ``artistic approach'' in which a skilled artist manually sets all reflectance characteristics to obtain a visually pleasant appearance that corresponds to the existing environment.

This paper briefly discusses the process of data acquisition. Also, the results of experiments on evaluating lighting simulation accuracy, and rendering fidelity for a Density Estimation Particle Tracing algorithm are presented. The importance of using the BRDF of surfaces in place of the more commonly used specular and diffuse reflectance coefficients is investigated for the test scene. The results obtained are contrasted with an ``artistic approach'' in which a skilled artist manually sets all reflectance characteristics to obtain a visually pleasant appearance that corresponds to the existing environment. %J Computers & Graphics %V 25 %N 3 %& 511 %P 511 - 518 %@ false

Abstract
One of the basic difficulties with interactive walkthroughs is the high quality rendering of object surfaces with non-diffuse light scattering characteristics. Since full ray tracing at interactive rates is usually impossible, we render a precomputed global illumination solution using graphics hardware and use remaining computational power to correct the appearance of non-diffuse objects on-the-fly. The question arises, how to obtain the best image quality as perceived by a human observer within a limited amount of time for each frame. We address this problem by enforcing corrective computation for those non-diffuse objects that are selected using a computational model of visual attention. We consider both the saliency- and task-driven selection of those objects and benefit from the fact that shading artifacts of ``unattended'' objects are likely to remain unnoticed. We use a hierarchical image-space sampling scheme to control ray tracing and splat the generated point samples. The resulting image converges progressively to a ray traced solution if the viewing parameters remain unchanged. Moreover, we use a sample cache to enhance visual appearance if the time budget for correction has been too low for some frame. We check the validity of the cached samples using a novel criterion suited for non-diffuse surfaces and reproject valid samples into the current view.

Abstract
The measurement of accurate material properties is an important step towards photorealistic rendering. Many real-world objects are composed of a number of materials that often show subtle changes even within a single material. Thus, for photorealistic rendering both the general surface properties as well as the spatially varying effects of the object are needed. We present an image-based measuring method that robustly detects the different materials of real objects and fits an average bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) to each of them. In order to model the local changes as well, we project the measured data for each surface point into a basis formed by the recovered BRDFs leading to a truly spatially varying BRDF representation. A high quality model of a real object can be generated with relatively few input data. The generated model allows for rendering under arbitrary viewing and lighting conditions and realistically reproduces the appearance of the original object.

Abstract
We investigate applications of the Visible Difference Predictor (VDP) to steer global illumination computation. We use the VDP to monitor the progression of computation as a function of time for major global illumination algorithms. Based on the results obtained, we propose a novel global illumination algorithm which is a hybrid of stochastic (density estimation) and deterministic (adaptive mesh refinement) techniques used in an optimized sequence to reduce the differences between the intermediate and final images as predicted by the VDP. Also, the VDP is applied to decide upon stopping conditions for global illumination simulation, when further continuation of computation does not contribute to perceivable changes in the quality of the resulting images.

Myszkowski, K. and Kunii, T.L. 2000. A Case Study Towards Validation of Global Illumination Algorithms: Progressive Hierarchical Radiosity with Clustering. The Visual Computer 16, 5.
Abstract
The paper consists of two main parts: presentation of an efficient global illumination algorithm and description of its extensive experimental validation. In the first part, a hybrid of cluster-based hierarchical and progressive radiosity techniques is proposed, which does not require storing links between interacting surfaces and clusters. The clustering does not rely on input geometry, but is performed on the basis of local position in the scene for a pre-meshed scene model. The locality of the resulting clusters improves the accuracy of form factor calculations, and increases the number of possible high-level energy transfers between clusters within an imposed error bound. Limited refinement of the hierarchy of light interactions is supported without compromising the quality of shading when intermediate images are produced immediately upon user request. In the second part, a multi-stage validation procedure is proposed and results obtained using the presented algorithm are discussed. At first, experimental validation of the algorithm against analytically-derived and measured real-world data is performed to check how calculation speed is traded for lighting simulation accuracy for various clustering and meshing scenarios. Then the algorithm performance and rendering quality is tested by a direct comparison of the virtual and real-world images of a complex environment.

In the first part, a hybrid of cluster-based hierarchical and progressive radiosity techniques is proposed, which does not require storing links between interacting surfaces and clusters. The clustering does not rely on input geometry, but is performed on the basis of local position in the scene for a pre-meshed scene model. The locality of the resulting clusters improves the accuracy of form factor calculations, and increases the number of possible high-level energy transfers between clusters within an imposed error bound. Limited refinement of the hierarchy of light interactions is supported without compromising the quality of shading when intermediate images are produced immediately upon user request. In the second part, a multi-stage validation procedure is proposed and results obtained using the presented algorithm are discussed. At first, experimental validation of the algorithm against analytically-derived and measured real-world data is performed to check how calculation speed is traded for lighting simulation accuracy for various clustering and meshing scenarios. Then the algorithm performance and rendering quality is tested by a direct comparison of the virtual and real-world images of a complex environment. %J The Visual Computer %V 16 %N 5 %& 271 %P 271 - 288 %@ false

Abstract
In this paper, we consider accelerated rendering of high quality walkthrough animation sequences along predefined paths. To improve rendering performance we use a combination of: a hybrid ray tracing and Image-Based Rendering (IBR) technique, and a novel perception-based antialiasing technique. In our rendering solution we derive as many pixels as possible using inexpensive IBR techniques without affecting the animation quality. A perception-based spatiotemporal Animation Quality Metric (AQM) is used to automatically guide such a hybrid rendering. The Image Flow (IF) obtained as a by-product of the IBR computation is an integral part of the AQM. The final animation quality is enhanced by an efficient spatiotemporal antialiasing, which utilizes the IF to perform a motion-compensated filtering. The filter parameters have been tuned using the AQM predictions of animation quality as perceived by the human observer. These parameters adapt locally to the visual pattern velocity.

Abstract
A novel view-independent technique for progressive global illumination computations has been developed that uses prediction of visible differences to improve both efficiency and effectiveness of physically-sound lighting solutions. The technique is a mixture of stochastic (density estimation) and deterministic (adaptive mesh refinement) algorithms that are used in a sequence optimized to reduce the differences between the intermediate and final images as perceived by the human observer in the course of lighting computations. The quantitative measurements of visibility were obtained using the model of human vision captured in the Visible Differences Predictor (VDP) developed by Daly \cite{Daly93}. The VDP responses were used to support selection of the best component algorithms from a pool of global illumination solutions, and to enhance the selected algorithms for even better progressive refinement of the image quality. Also, the VDP was used to determine the optimal sequential order of component-algorithm execution, and to choose the points at which switch-over between algorithms should take place. As the VDP is computationally expensive, it was applied exclusively at the stage of design and tuning of the composite technique, and so perceptual considerations are embedded into the resulting solution, though no VDP calculations are performed during the lighting simulation. The proposed global illumination technique is also novel, providing at unprecedented speeds intermediate image solutions of high quality even for complex scenes. One advantage of the technique is that local estimates of global illumination are readily available at early stages of computations. This makes possible the development of more robust adaptive mesh subdivision, which is guided by local contrast information. Also, based on stochastically-derived estimates of the local illumination error, an efficient object space filtering is applied to substantially reduce the visible noise inherent in stochastic solutions.
