We’ve loaded some Videotrace models on Sketchfab, a new 3D model sharing web site, which means you can embed them in web pages: Click on the model above to spin it around.
ACVT has been awarded a 3 year ARC Discovery Grant valued at $330,000. The CIs on the project are Prof. Anton van den Hengel and Dr Anthony Dick. The aim of this project is to collect and analyse a large collection of digital images and their associated depth maps, in order to formulate a method […]
Prof van den Hengel has been invited to give a keynote speech at this year’s Pacific-Rim Conference on Multimedia (PCM) to be held from 20th – 22nd Dec 2011 in Sydney. Pacific-Rim Conference on Multimedia (PCM) is a major annual international conference organized as a forum for the dissemination of state-of-the-art technological advances and research results in the fields of […]
Prof van den Hengel will give a seminar at Microsoft Research in Beijing in July titled “3D User-Created Content”. The talk describes much of the recent ACVT work in trying to make the generation of 3D content more accessible. The abstract is The technology to capture and visualise 3D content was invented before the aeroplane, […]
Prof van den Hengel will give a seminar in the Qualcomm Augmented Reality Lecture Series at Technische Universität Vienna in July. The title of the talk is Reconstruction and recognition for realistic augmented reality and the abstract: Augmented reality involves the rendering of synthetic content into live video. The believable augmentation of reality requires that synthetic content […]
The paper Real-time Modelling for AR Applications won second prize in the best paper awards at the International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality 2010 in Seoul, Korea. The paper describes a method for generating 3D models of objects which requires minimal user interaction. The motivation was the desire to allow users to create special […]
Well actually Anton van den Hengel gave a talk at the Max Planck Center for Visual Computing and Communication in Saarbreuken (Germany) about 3D User-Created Content (3DUCC). Anton was in Saarbrueken visiting the Computer Graphics Department of Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik there, and particularly the group of Dr. Thorsten Thormaehlen. Thorsten was instrumental in the development of Videotrace […]
