Two papers accepted to SIGGRAPH Asia 2017

We will be presenting two exciting papers at SIGGRAPH Asia 2017 in Bangkok. Please find preprints and additional materials here:

Snapshot Difference Imaging using Correlation Time-of-Flight Sensors

Clara Callenberg, Felix Heide, Gordon Wetzstein, Matthias Hullin
ACM Transactions on Graphics 36(6) (Proc. SIGGRAPH Asia), to appear, 2017.

Computation of image differences is a key operation in computational imaging. We use time-of-flight sensors to perform this operation in a single shot, and discover some remarkable features.

Scratch Iridescence: Wave-Optical Rendering of Diffractive Surface Structure

Sebastian Werner*, Zdravko Velinov*, Wenzel Jakob, Matthias B. Hullin (* joint first authors)
ACM Transactions on Graphics 36(6) (Proc. SIGGRAPH Asia), to appear, 2017.

Many real-world surfaces are covered in fine scratches that diffract light in colorful ways. Our model seamlessly transitions between ray optics and wave optics to recreate this intricate effect.
