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.

After decades of research on digital representations of material and object appearance, computer graphics has more recently turned to the problem of creating physical artifacts with controllable appearance characteristics. While this work has mostly progressed in two parallel streams – display technologies as well as novel fabrication processes – we believe there is a large overlap and the potential for synergies between these two approaches. In this report, we summarize research efforts from the worlds of fabrication display, and categorize the different approaches into a common taxonomy. We believe that this report can serve as a basis for systematic exploration of the design space in future research.
