    • Warping and Partitioning for Low Error Shadow Maps 

      Lloyd, D. Brandon; Tuft, David; Yoon, Sung-eui; Manocha, Dinesh (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      We evaluate several shadow map algorithms based on warping and partitioning using the maximum perspective aliasing error over the entire view frustum. With respect to our error metric, we show that a range of warping ...
    • Near Optimal Hierarchical Culling: Performance Driven Use of Hardware Occlusion Queries 

      Guthe, Michael; Balázs, Ákos; Klein, Reinhard (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      The most efficient general occlusion culling techniques are based on hardware accelerated occlusion queries. Although in many cases these techniques can considerably improve performance, they may still reduce efficiency ...

      Einarsson, Per; Chabert, Charles-Felix; Jones, Andrew; Ma, Wan-Chun; Lamond, Bruce; Hawkins, Tim; Bolas, Mark; Sylwan, Sebastian; Debevec, Paul (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      We present an image-based approach for capturing the appearance of a walking or running person so they can be rendered realistically under variable viewpoint and illumination. In our approach, a person walks on a treadmill ...
    • Adaptive Visibility-Driven View Cell Construction 

      Mattausch, Oliver; Bittner, Jirí; Wimmer, Michael (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      We present a new method for the automatic partitioning of view space into a multi-level view cell hierarchy. We use a cost-based model in order to minimize the average rendering time. Unlike previous methods, our model ...
    • Efficient Wavelet Rotation for Environment Map Rendering 

      Wang, Rui; Ng, Ren; Luebke, David; Humphreys, Greg (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      Real-time shading with environment maps requires the ability to rotate the global lighting to each surface point's local coordinate frame. Although extensive previous work has studied rotation of functions represented by ...
    • Exploiting Temporal Coherence for Incremental All-Frequency Relighting 

      Overbeck, Ryan; Ben-Artzi, Aner; Ramamoorthi, Ravi; Grinspun, Eitan (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      Precomputed radiance transfer (PRT) enables all-frequency relighting with complex illumination, materials and shadows. To achieve real-time performance, PRT exploits angular coherence in the illumination, and spatial ...
    • Wavelet Radiance Transport for Interactive Indirect Lighting 

      Kontkanen, Janne; Turquin, Emmanuel; Holzschuch, Nicolas; Sillion, François X. (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      Global illumination is a complex all-frequency phenomenon including subtle effects caused by indirect lighting. Computing global illumination interactively for dynamic lighting conditions has many potential applications, ...
    • Instant Ray Tracing: The Bounding Interval Hierarchy 

      Wächter, Carsten; Keller, Alexander (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      We introduce a new ray tracing algorithm that exploits the best of previous methods: Similar to bounding volume hierarchies the memory of the acceleration data structure is linear in the number of objects to be ray traced ...
    • Sequential Sampling for Dynamic Environment Map Illumination 

      Ghosh, Abhijeet; Doucet, Arnaud; Heidrich, Wolfgang (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      Sampling complex illumination in the form of environment maps has received a lot of attention in computer graphics. Recent work in this area has demonstrated that drawing samples from the product of light and BRDF produces ...
    • Making Radiance and Irradiance Caching Practical: Adaptive Caching and Neighbor Clamping 

      Krivánek, Jaroslav; Bouatouch, Kadi; Pattanaik, Sumanta; Zára, Jirí (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      Radiance and irradiance caching are efficient global illumination algorithms based on interpolating indirect illumination from a sparse set of cached values. In this paper we propose an adaptive algorithm for guiding spatial ...
    • Two Stage Importance Sampling for Direct Lighting 

      Cline, David; Egbert, Parris K.; Talbot, Justin F.; Cardon, David L. (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      We describe an importance sampling method to generate samples based on the product of a BRDF and an environment map or large light source. The method works by creating a hierarchical partition of the light source based on ...
    • Real-time Multi-perspective Rendering on Graphics Hardware 

      Hou, Xianyou; Wei, Li-Yi; Shum, Heung-Yeung; Guo, Baining (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      Multi-perspective rendering has a variety of applications; examples include lens refraction, curved mirror re- flection, caustics, as well depiction and visualization. However, multi-perspective rendering is not yet practical ...
    • Automatic Multiperspective Images 

      Román, Augusto; Lensch, Hendrik P. A. (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      Multiperspective images generated from a collection of photographs or a videostream can be used to effectively summarize long, roughly planar scenes such as city streets. The final image will span a larger field of view ...
    • Antialiasing for Automultiscopic 3D Displays 

      Zwicker, Matthias; Matusik, Wojciech; Durand, Frédo; Pfister, Hanspeter (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      Automultiscopic displays show stereoscopic images that can be viewed from any viewpoint without special glasses. They hold great promise for the future of television and digital entertainment. However, the image quality ...
    • An Efficient Multi-View Rasterization Architecture 

      Hasselgren, Jon; Akenine-Möller, Tomas (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      TV have been designed and built. However, these displays have received relatively little attention in the context of real-time computer graphics. We present a novel rasterization architecture that rasterizes each triangle ...
