Virtual Video Camera: Image-Based Viewpoint Navigation Through Space and Time


Virtual Video Camera: Image-Based Viewpoint Navigation Through Space and Time

We present an image-based rendering system to viewpoint-navigate through space and time of complex real-world, dynamic scenes. Our approach accepts unsynchronized, uncalibrated multi-video footage as input. Inexpensive, consumer-grade camcorders suffice to acquire arbitrary scenes, e.g., in the outdoors, without elaborate recording setup procedures, allowing also for hand-held recordings. Acquisition simplification, integration of moving cameras, generalization to difficult scenes, and space-time symmetric interpolation amount to a widely applicable Virtual Video Camera system.
