Robust estimation of surface properties and interpolation of shadow/specularity components

Mark S. Drew, Yacov Hel-Or, Tom Malzbender, Nasim Hajari
2012 Image and Vision Computing  
PTM has two aims: interpolation of images for new lighting directions, and recovery of surface properties.  ...  Here we show that a robust approach is a good deal more accurate in recovering surface properties.  ...  Black dots are Matte+Shadow+Specular luminance; blue circles are non-robust matte LS regression; black crosses are correct matte luminance; and red squares are robust LMS fit.  ...

Improving realism of 3D texture using component based modeling

Siddharth Kherada, Prateek Pandey, Anoop M. Namboodiri
2012 2012 IEEE Workshop on the Applications of Computer Vision (WACV)  
We show that the direct and global components of the image have different nature, and when modeled separately, leads to a more accurate and compact model of the 3D surface texture.  ...  This method models sharp shadows and specularities, while preserving the structural relief and surface color.  ...  Each of these components is then further separated to obtain different physical phenomena such as shadows, specularity and luminance.  ...

Augmenting deformable objects in real-time

J. Pilet, V. Lepetit, P. Fua
2005 Fourth IEEE and ACM International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR'05)  
The whole process of uncompressing the video stream, measuring the deformations, estimating the lighting parameters, and realistically augmenting the input image takes about 100 ms on a 2.8 GHz PC.  ...  It is fully automated and does not require any manual initialization or engineering of the scene.  ...  Not only is our approach real-time and fully automated but it also handles complex lighting effects, such as cast shadows, specularities, and multiple light sources of different hues and saturation.  ...

Local Spherical Harmonics for Facial Shape and Albedo Estimation

Suwoong Heo, Hyewon Song, Jiwoo Kang, Sanghoon Lee
2020 IEEE Access  
However, when a facial image is captured in an unconstrained scene, the illumination is inappropriately estimated due to the presence of shadow and specular reflections.  ...  For accurate estimation of albedo, we also utilize facial albedo statistics to prevent the estimated albedo from becoming biased toward input image.  ...  Although the second-order SH is proven to be robust for Lambertian diffuse surfaces [19] , facial images in natural scenes contain various lighting effects such as cast shadow, specular, and indirect  ...
