We present a new approach for computer-generated integral photography (IP) based on ray tracing, for the reconstruction of high quality photorealistic 3-D images of increased complexity. With the proposed methodology, all the optical elements of a single-stage IP capturing setup are physically modeled for the production of real and virtual orthoscopic IP images with depth control. This approach is straightforward for translating a computer-generated 3-D scene to an IP image, and constitutes a robust methodology for developing modules that can be easily integrated in existing ray tracers. An extension of this technique enables the generation of photorealistic 3-D videos [integral videography (IV)] and provides an invaluable tool for the development of 3-D video processing algorithms.
