Generalized Image Acquisition and Analysis

Performance Capture of High-Speed Motion Using Staggered Multi-View Recording

We present a markerless performance capture system that can acquire the motion and the texture of human actors performing fast movements using only commodity hardware. To this end we introduce two novel concepts: First, a staggered surround multi-view recording setup that enables us to perform model-based motion capture on motion-blurred images, and second, a model-based deblurring algorithm which is able to handle disocclusion, self-occlusion and complex object motions. We show that the model-based approach is not only a powerful strategy for tracking but also for deblurring highly complex blur patterns.

In the press

Our work on dynamically displaying BRDFs is going to be featured in the September issue of 3D World, a magazine for 3D artists, covering SIGGRAPH's Emerging Technologies where we will demo our work. Matthias Hullin is quoted as "I don't expect a BRDF display to become available in the next 20 years. The principle on which the Nintendo 3DS is based was patented back in 1913!" -->
