Title: PHOTO-REALISTIC SHALLOW DEPTH-OF-FIELD RENDERING FROM FOCAL STACKS
Abstract:
Generating an image with a selected level of background blur includes capturing, by a first image capture device, a plurality of frames of a scene, wherein each of the plurality of frames has a different focus depth, obtaining a depth map of the scene, determining a target object and a background in the scene based on the depth map, determining a goal blur for the background, and selecting, for each pixel in an output image, a corresponding pixel from the focus stack.
