This paper proposes a new technique to produce high quality integral photography (IP) images. IP is an ideal 3D image display system in which viewers can see realistic 3D images from arbitrary directions without wearing special glasses. In addition, IP is excellent with printing technologies since both pinhole arrays and IP images can be printed on transparent sheets by high resolution printers. Up to now IP images were produced by using CG or photography, but the quality of the CG images was not always satisfactory, since only simple objects such as cones or spheres were used. Shade™ is a commercial three dimensional CG application with abundant powers of expression, and is very popular among professional CG artists especially in Japan, since it is suitable for expressing complex shapes such as human bodies with delicacy. By controlling the camera position of Shade by a script language, and synthesizing an IP image from resultant still images according to our algorithm, the authors achieved the 3D display of realistic scenes created with Shade.
