High-Quality 3D Videos

  • Edilson de Aguiar
Part of the Cognitive Systems Monographs book series (COSMOS, volume 5)


In this chapter, we describe a method to render realistic 3D Videos by applying a clever dynamic 3D texturing scheme to the moving geometry representation captured by the methods proposed in the previous chapters. By displaying high-quality renderings of the recorded actor from any viewpoint, our system enables new interesting applications for 3D Television.
