Image-based Teapot

Tien-Tsin Wong, Pheng-Ann Heng, Siu-Hang Or and Wai-Yin Ng, "Image-based Teapot", Technical Slide, SIGGRAPH'97.



These images show the result of a new image-based rendering technique. It allows not just navigating the object, but also changing the lighting setup of the image-based object. The left image shows an image-based teapot illuminated with a light source from the right. The right one shows the result illuminated with a light source from the top. Note that all results are generated from images, not geometrical objects.

Hardware: SGI Indigo 2 with High Impact
Software: Experimental image-based renderer
