  • The Visual Computing of Projector-Camera Systems 

    Bimber, Oliver; Iwai, Daisuke; Wetzstein, Gordon; Grundhoefer, Anselm (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    This article focuses on real-time image correction techniques that enable projector-camera systems to display images onto screens that are not optimized for projections, such as geometrically complex, coloured and textured ...
  • Camera Control in Computer Graphics 

    Christie, Marc; Olivier, Patrick; Normand, Jean-Marie (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    Recent progress in modelling, animation and rendering means that rich, high fidelity virtual worlds are found in many interactive graphics applications. However, the viewer s experience of a 3D world is dependent on the ...
  • Cultural Heritage As a Vehicle for Basic Research in Computing Science: Pasteur s Quadrant and a Use-Inspired Basic Research Agenda 

    Arnold, David (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    Donald Stokes argued [Sto97] that for 50 years from the end of the Second World War to the end of the 20th century, there was an unhealthy taxonomy of research types which was formulated on a linear scale from pure to ...
  • 2008 Eurographics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization 

    Weiskopf, Daniel (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
  • Real-Time Indirect Illumination and Soft Shadows in Dynamic Scenes Using Spherical Lights 

    Guerrero, P.; Jeschke, S.; Wimmer, M. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    We present a method for rendering approximate soft shadows and diffuse indirect illumination in dynamic scenes. The proposed method approximates the original scene geometry with a set of tightly fitting spheres. In previous ...
  • Tangible Heritage: Production of Astrolabes on a Laser Engraver 

    Zotti, G. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    The astrolabe, an analog computing device, used to be the iconic instrument of astronomers during the Middle Ages. It allowed a multitude of operations of practical astronomy which were otherwise cumbersome to perform in ...
  • Mapping Highly Detailed Colour Information on Extremely Dense 3D Models: The Case of David s Restoration 

    Dellepiane, M.; Callieri, M.; Ponchio, F.; Scopigno, R. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    The support of advanced information technology (IT) to preservation, restoration and documentation of Cultural Heritage (CH) is becoming a very important goal for the research community. Michelangelo s David was one of the ...
  • Peek-in-the-Pic: Flying Through Architectural Scenes From a Single Image* 

    Shesh, Amit; Chen, Baoquan (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    Many casually taken tourist photographs comprise of architectural objects like houses, buildings, etc. Reconstructing such 3D scenes captured in a single photograph is a very challenging problem. We propose a novel ...
  • Adaptive Surface Texture Synthesis Using Round-Shaped Neighbourhoods 

    Chen, D.; Dong, F. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    This paper presents a novel surface texture synthesis method, which is capable of producing high-quality results by performing the synthesis within an effective multi-resolution scheme using an adaptive texture similarity ...
  • Expressive Speech Animation Synthesis with Phoneme-Level Controls 

    Deng, Z.; Neumann, U. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    This paper presents a novel data-driven expressive speech animation synthesis system with phoneme-level controls. This system is based on a pre-recorded facial motion capture database, where an actress was directed to ...
  • Diffusion Based Photon Mapping 

    Schjoeth, L.; Sporring, J.; Fogh Olsen, O. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    Density estimation employed in multi-pass global illumination algorithms give cause to a trade-off problem between bias and noise. The problem is seen most evident as blurring of strong illumination features. In particular, ...
  • GPU-Based Spherical Light Field Rendering with Per-Fragment Depth Correction 

    Todt, S.; Rezk-Salama, C.; Kolb, A.; Kuhnert, K.-D. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    Image-based rendering techniques are a powerful alternative to traditional polygon-based computer graphics. This paper presents a novel light field rendering technique which performs per-pixel depth correction of rays for ...
  • Untitled 

    Leotta, Matthew J.; Vandergon, Austin; Taubin, Gabriel (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    We present a planarity constraint and a novel three-dimensional (3D) point reconstruction algorithm for a multiview laser range slit scanner. The constraint is based on the fact that all observed points on a projected laser ...
  • Geometry Textures and Applications 

    De Toledo, Rodrigo; Wang, Bin; Levy, Bruno (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    Geometry textures are a novel geometric representation for surfaces based on height maps. The visualization is done through a graphics processing unit (GPU) ray casting algorithm applied to the whole object. At rendering ...
  • High-speed Marching Cubes using HistoPyramids 

    Dyken, Christopher; Ziegler, Gernot; Theobalt, Christian; Seidel, Hans-Peter (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    We present an implementation approach for Marching Cubes (MC) on graphics hardware for OpenGL 2.0 or comparable graphics APIs. It currently outperforms all other known graphics processing units (GPU)-based iso-surface ...
  • Compression and Importance Sampling of Near-Field Light Sources 

    Mas, Albert; Martin, Ignacio; Patow, Gustavo (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    This paper presents a method for compressing measured datasets of the near-field emission of physical light sources (represented by raysets). We create a mesh on the bounding surface of the light source that stores ...
