Tenth Annual Symposium on Frontiers of Engineering Debevec’s Ph.D. thesis (UC-Berkeley, 1996) presented an image-based modeling and rendering system for creating photoreal architectural models from photographs. Based on this system, he led a team that created a photorealistic model of the Berkeley campus for his 1997 film, The Campanile Movie; the techniques were later used to create the Academy Award-winning virtual backgrounds in the 1999 film, The Matrix. Dr. Debevec has developed techniques for capturing real-world illumination and for illuminating synthetic objects with real light, facilitating the integration of real and computer-generated imagery; these techniques were demonstrated in his 1999 film, Fiat Lux. He has also led the development of the “Light Stage,” a device that allows objects and actors to be synthetically illuminated with any form of lighting, recently used to create photoreal digital actors for the film Spider-Man 2. In 2001, he received the first Significant New Researcher Award from the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques (SIGGRAPH), and in 2002, he received the TR 100 Award from Technology Review.
