[ The Challenge: From 2D Images to 3D Animation ]

From personal, entertainment to massive, commercial purpose, if you want to present a scene, no matter whether the scene is an indoor or outdoor, virtual or real one, making a virtual touring of the scene is an effective way to allow the audiences to navigate inside the environment. Given a single image of the scene, its 3D information will be explored using visual clues. Its corresponding 3D model can then be "virtually" reconstructed and the scene can be viewed at different positions and angles. Finally, the virtual touring can be produced by navigating inside the reconstructed model. This method works for the scenes in real or virtual environment, even paintings and the illustrations in the comic books can be converted into animations.

Extensive computer background is not required. As you work on the project, you will learn some interesting software tools and enjoy the fantastic study environment of the HKUST campus. In addition, you can experience and learn the skills of being a Computer Science student at HKUST.
