Paper Abstract

Image-based rendering and modeling has lead to major advances in computer graphics. Using images as input has enabled the creation of more realistic and convincing computer generated images. Many of the current image-based rendering algorithms, however, use primarily geometric information. The next logical step are to incorporates more photometric information, including lighting and material properties. Material properties are particularly important, since understanding the optical properties of materials - or appearance models - requires interdisciplinary research involving expertise in both vision and graphics. In this paper, we review the current work and suggest directions for future research.
