VIZA 665 : Digital Compositing
Spring 2015
Project 03: Compositing with a Specular Scene First Review: Mar. 02
Submissions Due: Apr. 08
Goal: To learn handling transparency and reflection.
Synopsis: This project is intended for you to deal with scenes that include reflective and transparent surfaces.

Use scenes from scenes with reflective and transparent objects as a background as follows:
  1. Row --> Scene 5 -Indoor Scene with Sunlight and a Mirror
  2. Row --> Scene 6 -Indoor Scene with Sunlight and a Glass Ball
  3. Row --> Scene 7 - Indoor Scene with Sunlight and a Glass Vase
  4. Row --> Scene 8 - Indoor Scene with Sunlight and a Glass Bottle
  5. Row --> Scene 10 by Shyam Kannapurakkaran
  6. Row --> Scene 7 for Yinan Xiong and Scene 8 for You Wu.

Use one of the sculptures provided file.

Your grade will be computed as (1/2)^n where n is the number of the items you missed from the following list:
  • Target date
  • Progress
  • Matching local camera position and orientation
  • Consistent matching of artificial object with the lights and objects in the original image
    (each subject counted one and they depend on the problem.)
    • For diffuse parts of artificial object
      • Shading
      • Colors
      • Ambient illumination
      • Contact shadows
    • Specular/glossy parts of artificial object
      • Specular reflection of light
      • Reflection of environment
    • Transparent/translucent parts of artificial object
      • Refraction of light
      • Refraction of environment
    • Shadow of artificial object
      • Shadow colors
      • Shadow shape
    • Reflection of artificial object
      • Shape of reflection
      • Shading of reflection
      • Colors of reflected object
      • Ambient illumination of reflected object
      • Contact shadows
    • Refraction of artificial object
      • Shape of refraction
      • Shading of refraction
      • Noise on refraction
      • Ambient illumination on refracted object
      • Refraction of contact shadows
      • Inclusion of opaque regions
  • Additional effects to be considered
    • Scatttering
    • Subsurface scattering
    • Consistent noise with original
    • Halo avoidance
