Abstract

A hybrid approach for fast occlusion processing in computer-generated hologram calculation is studied in this paper. The proposed method is based on the combination of two commonly used approaches that complement one another: the point-source and wave-field approaches. By using these two approaches together, the proposed method thus takes advantage of both of them. In this method, the 3D scene is first sliced into several depth layers parallel to the hologram plane. Light scattered by the scene is then propagated and shielded from one layer to another using either a point-source or a wave-field approach according to a threshold criterion on the number of points within the layer. Finally, the hologram is obtained by computing the propagation of light from the nearest layer to the hologram plane. Experimental results reveal that the proposed method does not produce any visible artifact and outperforms both the point-source and wave-field approaches.
