ECCV 2010 Images.


The zip files below contain the images used in our ECCV 2010 paper. There are 5 different surface profiles (Gabors 1-4 + sinewave) each with three surface treatments. GroundThruth = matt grey surfaces representing the shading ground truth for each surface. HT = surfaces with a stripy pattern where the mean luminance hue and texture orientation vary between stripes, the contrast of the texture being about equal in the two types of stripe. HTC = as HT but the contrast of the texture also varies between stripes such that the lower luminance (red) stripes have the higher contrast.

The file nameing convention is EIIII_TTT_dD_sNnn.n_Wnn.n_x_E.png where IIII = surface type (eg GAB1), TTT=treatment (eg HTC), D indicates diffuse (=f) or no diffuse (=x) lighting Nnn.n indicates the polar elevation angle of the spot light (eg x00.00 = no spot light, n30.0 = light at 30 degrees north (above 'equator'), Wnn.n indicates the azimuth of the spot light (x00.0 = no spot light, e30.0 = 30 degrees to the east [right] of the veritcal meridian, w45.0 = 45 degrees west [left] of the vertical meridian) , E indicates the camera used to take the photograph (l=left, r=right). Note that the spot light at n00.0_w00.0 is directly in line with surface and the mid point between the cameras.
