A novel technique generating arbitrary view images in perspective and orthographic geometry based on integral imaging is proposed. After capturing three-dimensional object using a lens array, disparity estimation is performed for the pixels at the selected position of each elemental image. According to the estimated disparity, appropriate parts of elemental images are mapped to synthesize new view images in perspective or orthographic geometry. As a result, the proposed method is capable of generating new view images at arbitrary positions with high resolution and wide field of view.
