Paper Abstract

With the use of miniature scenes and models, it is possible to synthesize realistic images by combining a scene containing normal size objects with a scene containing miniature objects. The normal size scene is generally termed the foreground and the miniature is termed the background. The resulting synthesized image is generated from the foreground and background scenes using an advanced matting technique. Prior to the development of the Magicam system, camera movement during the matte had little success with holding adequate perspective match in order to achieve realistic composite images.
