By changing the optical properties of the imaged object, you can synthesize specular highlights

  1. Wait for the status bar below to reach 100% before beginning.
  2. Once the movie is completely loaded, click anywhere to move the light source.
  3. You may also drag the mouse around and the light source will follow.
  4. The Shift key allows you to zoom in, the Control key zooms out.

This QuickTime VR is merely a coarse approximation of the actual image-based relighting technology. Drag the mouse to change the lighting on the object. Although this demo shows an abrupt transition between the various lighting directions, image-based relighting technology is a smooth, continuous-tone process.
