Title: "Toward Modeling Impossible Figures In Omnidirectional Views"


Mr. Chung Yin LEUNG


This paper presents a general approach to modeling a complex 3D scene with 
impossible figures that supports real-time modeling and rendering at 
unprecedented range of viewpoints. To achieve the connection illusion 
perceived when the viewer attempts to mentally glide on the surface of the 
impossible figure, we propose the view-dependent Laplacian deformation 
(VDLD): the camera guides the deformation algorithm running at high frame 
rate subject to connection constraints at rendering viewpoints while 
preserving the rigid look of impossible figures. The depth illusion is 
achieved by shifting and scaling the 3D model. We demonstrate complex 3D 
artworks and scenes for games.
