Novel View Synthesis on DSLR Images

The novel view synthesis task is to render images from novel viewpoints given a dense RGB capture of the scene. The images are captured by a fisheye DSLR camera, and camera poses from COLMAP are provided for every training and test image.

We also provide the undistorted evaluation track: rendering undistorted perspective (pinhole) images of the given poses. The training images and the GT are generated from the raw fisheye images using the ScanNet++ Toolbox.

Evaluation and Metrics

We evaluate the similarity beween the ground truth and generated RGB images. Our evaluation metrics are peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR), structural similarity index measure (SSIM), and learned perceptual image patch similarity (LPIPS). For each pair of generated and ground-truth images, we compute these three metrics, and the numbers reported in the table are the average over all the images across all the scenes.

Evaluation is carried out on GT images with resolution 1752 x 1168. Submitted images will be automatically resized if their resolutions differ from this.

Evaluation excludes the pixels which are anonymized. Anonymized pixels are specified in resized_anon_masks and original_anon_masks.
