Robust reconstruction of arbitrarily deformed bokeh from ordinary multiple differently focused images
This paper deals with a method of generating seriously deformed bokeh on reconstructed images from ordinary multiple differently focused images including just simple bokeh such as Gaussian blurs. We previously proposed scene re-focusing with various iris shapes by applying a three-dimensional filter to the multi-focus images. However, actually the proposed method implicitly assumed that the feature of the iris can be expressed mathematically and it has some symmetry like a horizontally open iris. In this paper, at first, the captured multi-focus images are robustly decomposed into components, each of which goes through its own corresponding pin-hole on the lens, by using dimension reduction and a two-dimensional filter. Then, based on the appropriate composition of the components, reconstruction of arbitrarily deformed bokeh introduced by any user-defined iris is achieved. By some experiments, we show that our novel method can generate even seriously deformed bokeh that does not have simple symmetry.
