Abstract : Image-based rendering offers the advantage of being able to provide realistic output and at the same time to avoid the difficult problem of a complete geometric and photometric modeling of the real world. The method described here is able to deal with non rigid scenes and large camera motions. We present in this report a three step algorithm for the interpolation of two views of a scene, from which we can for instance simulated a camera motion withing the given scene. The first step establishes pixel correspondenc- es between the images and is the most difficult part. We justify the choice of region-growing based dense matching methods and we summarize their principle. Secondly, a robust algorithm converts these pixel correspondences to an adequate structure for the last step: image interpolation. This structure encompasses the transformation between the images using constrained and dependent triangulations in both of them, and handles the half-occluded areas. The implementation of the whole process is outlined and the process is demonstrated on real images.
