Lecture/Seminar Brian Barsky: An Overview of Photo-Realistic Rendering of Depth of Field, Vision-Realistic Rendering, and Vision-Correcting Displays 2013-07-29 14:30:00

ABSTRACT The multidisciplinary BLUR project at UC Berkeley combines computer graphics with optics, optometry, and photography.  This research has investigated mathematical models to describe the shape of the cornea and algorithms for cornea measurement, scientific and medical visualization for the display of cornea shape, mathematics and algorithms for the design and fabrication of contact lenses, simulation of vision using actual patient data measured by wavefront aberrometry, photo-realistic rendering algorithms for generating imagery with optically-correct depth of field, view camera simulation, and custom vision correction by inverse prefiltering.  This talk will present an overview of photo-realistic rendering algorithms for simulating depth of field found in photographs, vision-realistic rendering algorithms for simulating a subject's vision, and the research in progress to develop vision-correcting displays based on computing an altered display that when viewed by the subject would appear in sharp focus for the particular individual.

Film "Renoir" 2013-07-29 19:00:00


MAY 24 & 25   (7:00 & 9:10)


Director: Gilles Bourdos    

France, 2012, 111 min; French with subtitles

In 1915, the 15-year-old Andrée Heuschling took a position in the 74-year-old painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s gorgeously situated home on the Côte d’Azur. The beautiful young woman (Christa Theret) inspired a renewed vigour in the aging master (Michel Bouquet) and assumed the role of Renoir’s final model/muse. Enter Renoir’s 21-year-old son Jean (Vincent Rottiers)—future genius of cinema—who, having been wounded in WWI, comes home to convalesce. He falls in love…The delights here are many: luscious cinematography gives the sun-dappled setting the luminosity one only finds in the south of France; and the acting is superlative. —Vancouver International Film Festival
