Abstract

In this paper, we present computational methods for reconstructing a free view of a partially occluded object using integral imaging. To obtain unobstructed images with high resolution, low focus error, and large depth of focus, synthetic aperture integral imaging utilizing a digital camera has been adopted. Two novel algorithms are proposed: 1) an algorithm for reconstructing volumetric perspective images and 2) an algorithm for scaling reconstructed images at arbitrary distances.
