Light Factorization for Mixed-Frequency Shadows in Augmented Reality-Image

Integrating animated virtual objects with their surroundings for high-quality augmented reality requires both geometric and radiometric consistency. We focus on the latter of these problems and present an approach that captures and factorizes external lighting in a manner that allows for realistic relighting of both animated and static virtual objects. Our factorization facilitates a combination of hard and soft shadows, with high-performance, in a manner that is consistent with the surrounding scene lighting.
