Robust Blending and Occlusion Compensation in Dynamic Multi-Projection Mapping

Using multi-projection systems allows us to immerse users in an altered reality without the need to wear additional head-gear. The immersion of such systems relies on the quality of the calibration which in general will degenerate over time when used outside of a lab environment. This work introduces a novel balance term that allows us to hide high frequency brightness seams caused by self-shadowing of the projected geometry and the borders of the projection frustum. We further use this more robust blending between projectors to compensate for occluding spectators, who enter the projection volume, by filling the resulting shadows with light from other projectors.
