Abstract
In this paper, we propose a system for generating arbitrary viewpoint images. The system is based on image measurement and consists of three steps: HDTV image recording, modeling from images and displaying arbitrary viewpoint images. The model data is converted to VRML models. In order to estimate 3D shapes, we developed a new modeling algorithm using the block matching method as well as the volume intersection method. The proposed algorithm achieves fast and precise modeling. It is confirmed that the derived human model with motion can be smoothly played in a VRML browser on a PC, and the viewing position of the observer can be changed by mouse control.
