Tien-Tsin Wong, Chi-Wing Fu and Pheng-Ann Heng "Disco", Technical Slide, SIGGRAPH'98.



Traditional panorama is an image with fixed illumination. The images shown in this slide demonstrate a new image-based rendering technique. It allows not just navigating the panorama, but also changing the lighting setup of the scene shown in the panoramic image. The top image shows a chessboard environment illuminated by five spotlights, each with different intensity. The three bottom images show three snapshots when the panorama is viewed perspectively. All results are generated from images, not geometrical objects.

Hardware: SGI Octane.
Software: Proprietary illumination-controllable panorama renderer
