Dynamic View Morphing
• performs view interpolation of dynamic scenes
Expanded Theory
• orthography
• methods for finding camera-to-camera transformation
• virtual camera not restricted to line connecting original cameras
• “weak rectification” is sufficient for physical realism
• appearance of straight-line motion without camera-to-camera transformation

For Orthographic Projection

physically correct

straight-line motion

(because motion vectors aligned)

constant-velocity motion

(because motion vectors identical)

For Perspective Projection
• IF first make image planes parallel to:
• motion of object, and
• each other
• THEN orthographic results apply
• condition above is “weak rectification”

Camera-to-camera transformation
• denoted TAB
• once known, view interpolations portray “constant velocity” motion
• potential for model building
Finding TAB
• can be determined from fundamental matrices for two distinct objects
• can be determined from four conjugate directions
• can be approximated from two conjugate directions
Layering Static Objects
• improves sense of object rigidity

static “table, walls, and floor” object gets broken into two pieces

Environment Map Morphing
Environment Map
• “environment map” or “panoramic mosaic” or “plenoptic function”: all the light that reaches a given point in space at an instant in time
Environment Map Morphing
• View morphing of entire environment maps
• uncalibrated cameras
• sparse correspondences
• widely separated views
• In particular, view morphing with
• camera moving towards scene
• object’s vanishing point in view
Benefits
• placing synthetic object over real object
• segmentation
• point correspondences
• camera-to-camera transformation
• can also use real object views instead of a synthetic object
Benefits
• automation
• by matching edges, computer can place model automatically
• all previous benefits become automated
• scenario visualization
• combine synthetic objects with real scenes to create new scenarios
Layering Static Objects
• greatly improves sense of object solidity

static “table, walls, and floor” object gets broken into two pieces

B

each object W has its own fundamental matrix FW

rectify image planes

interpolate conjugate points

use interpolated points to guide morphing algorithm

rectify image cylinders

interpolate conjugate points

use interpolated points to guide morphing algorithm

Analogous to View Morphing

Environment Map Morphing
• (STEP 1) find fundamental matrix
• (STEP 2) “strongly rectify” the views

then notice that, for any point in space, camera A and

camera B will give the same y and z coordinates

Environment Map Morphing
• (STEP 3) project environment map onto “image cylinder” (a.k.a “pipe”)
• (STEP 4) interpolate conjugate points and morph

this is the cylinder y2 + z2 = 1

Outline
• layering; static scenes, improvement
• orthography
• generalization of math for view morphing
• making objects appear to follow line
• Tab and how to find
Underlying Mathematics
• “weak” rectification: image planes parallel
• virtual movement not restricted to line
Orthography
• long-distance photography
• no prewarps needed! (physical correctness)
• straight-line motion by aligning directions
