Rendering Synthetic Objects into Legacy Photographs

October 30, 2011

Just a quick note:

Kevin Karsch posted a video on vimeo under the title:

“Rendering Synthetic Objects into Legacy Photographs”
at Rendering Synthetic Objects into Legacy Photographs which was published at SIGGARPH Asia 2011
He (/his group ?) takes a 2D picture and users mark 3D-axis-system in the picture and some further objects in the scene. Moreover they mark light sources. From this, he can add objects in the scene which are lit more realisticly then without knowing the light sources. He did a user study on the quality of his results.
(I found this via StumbleUpon on and I’m still searching for a good site to get updates on research like this. (Okay, maybe I should check out the SIGGRAPH papers more thoroughly ))
