The paper Real-time Modelling for AR Applications won second prize in the best paper awards at the International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality 2010 in Seoul, Korea.
The paper describes a method for generating 3D models of objects which requires minimal user interaction. The motivation was the desire to allow users to create special effects to video as it is captures. The interface is thus suitable for implementation on a video camera or phone.
The video shows the technique being used to copy and paste real objects in live video. The user can thus indicate the object they are interested in, and then indicate where they’d like it to appear. The system models the object and renders it where it needs to be, all as the video is being captured.
