Virtual Asukakyo Project

Virtual Asukakyo ProjectVirtual Asukakyo project intends to restore the ancient capital of Asukakyo to its original state using Mixed Reality (MR). We reconstructed the lost buildings of Asukakyo with CG and synthesized them with the real landscape of Asuka Village. To improve the quality of the synthesized image, we worked on the problem of the photometric consistency in MR using a fast shading and shadowing method based on shadowing plane and pre-rendered basis images.
