Abstract:
We present a process for estimating spatially-varying surface re- flectance of a complex scene observed under natural illumination conditions. The process uses a laser-scanned model of the scene's geometry, a set of digital images viewing the scene's surfaces under a variety of natural illumination conditions, and a set of correspond- ing measurements of the scene's incident illumination in each pho- tograph. The process then employs an iterative inverse global illu- mination technique to compute surface colors for the scene which, when rendered under the recorded illumination conditions, best re- produce the scene's appearance in the photographs. In our process we measure BRDFs of representative surfaces in the scene to better model the non-Lambertian surface reflectance. Our process uses a novel lighting measurement apparatus to record the full dynamic range of both sunlit and cloudy natural illumination conditions. We employ Monte-Carlo global illumination, multiresolution geome- try, and a texture atlas system to perform inverse global illumina- tion on the scene. The result is a lighting-independent model of the scene that can be re-illuminated under any form of lighting. We demonstrate the process on a real-world archaeological site, show- ing that the technique can produce novel illumination renderings consistent with real photographs as well as reflectance properties that are consistent with ground-truth reflectance measurements.
