FloRen: Real-time High-quality Human Performance Rendering via Appearance Flow Using Sparse RGB Cameras
DescriptionWe propose FloRen, a novel system for real-time, high-resolution free-view human synthesis. Our system runs at 15fps in 1K resolution with very sparse RGB cameras. In FloRen, a coarse-level implicit geometry is recovered at first as initialization, and then processed by a neural rendering framework based on appearance flow. Our appearance flow-based rendering framework consists of three steps, namely view-dependent depth refinement, appearance flow estimation and occlusion-aware color rendering. In this way, we resolve the view synthesis problem in the image plane, where 2D convolutional neural networks can be efficiently applied, contributing to high speed performance. For robust appearance flow estimation, we explicitly combine data-driven human prior knowledge with multiview geometric constraints. The accurate appearance flow enables precise color mapping from input view to novel view, which greatly facilitates high-resolution novel view generation. We demonstrate that our system achieves state-of-the-art performance and even outperforms many offline methods.
