Computer scientists at Google have developed a system for high-quality, relightable performance capture. The volumetric capture system, called The Relightables, can capture full-body reflectance of 3D human performances and seamlessly blend them into a new environment through augmented reality (AR) or into digital scenes in films and games. Character lighting can be customized in real time.
The team designed a novel active depth sensor to capture 12.4-MP depth maps. It then designed a hybrid geometric and machine learning reconstruction pipeline to process the high-resolution input and produce a volumetric video. The researchers then generated temporally consistent reflectance maps for dynamic performers by leveraging the information…READ MORE
