Paper Abstract

We have been researching three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction from images captured by multiple cameras. Currently, we are investigating how to convert 3D models into stereoscopic images. We are interested in integral photography (IP), one of many stereoscopic display systems, because the IP display system reconstructs complete 3D auto-stereoscopic images in theory. This system consists of a high-resolution liquid-crystal panel and a lens array. It enables users to obtain a perspective view of 3D auto-stereoscopic images from any direction. We developed a method for converting 3D models into IP images using the OpenGL API. This method can be applied to normal CG objects because the 3D model is described in a CG format. In this paper, we outline our 3D modeling method and the performance of an IP display system. Then we discuss the method for converting 3D models into IP images and report experimental results.
