Conference Proceeding
Casas, L., Fauconneau, M., Kosek, M., Mclister, K., & Mitchell, K. (2018)
Image Based Proximate Shadow Retargeting. In Proceedings of Computer Graphics & Visual Computing (CGVC) 2018https://doi.org/10.2312/cgvc.20181206
We introduce Shadow Retargeting which maps real shadow appearance to virtual shadows given a corresponding deformation of scene geometry, such that appearance is seamlessly ma...

Interactive Ray-Traced Area Lighting with Adaptive Polynomial Filtering

Conference Proceeding
Iglesias-Guitian, J. A., Moon, B., & Mitchell, K. (2016)
Interactive Ray-Traced Area Lighting with Adaptive Polynomial Filtering. In Proceedings of the 13th European Conference on Visual Media Production (CVMP 2016)
Area lighting computation is a key component for synthesizing photo-realistic rendered images, and it simulates plausible soft shadows by considering geometric relationships b...

PoseMMR: A Collaborative Mixed Reality Authoring Tool for Character Animation

Conference Proceeding
Pan, Y., & Mitchell, K. (2020)
PoseMMR: A Collaborative Mixed Reality Authoring Tool for Character Animation. In 2020 IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces Abstracts and Workshops (VRW). https://doi.org/10.1109/vrw50115.2020.00230
Augmented reality devices enable new approaches for character animation, e.g., given that character posing is three dimensional in nature it follows that interfaces with highe...
