Paper Abstract

This paper discusses three application areas for depth map creation using laser radar (LADAR); synthetic interocular distances (SIOD) and convergence, virtual set merging of live action and dynamic re-lighting of content in post. Any one of these applications brings considerable value to the video production process and each will be discussed in turn. Additionally, the problem of merging multiple LADAR views into an integrated model is discussed. Such large scale multi-view LADAR system are just now emerging and promise to create synthetic video environments more complex than dual cameras mixed with depth maps, resulting in the ability to adjust camera position via synthesis.
