SGTDGP (for Synthetic Ground Truth Data Generation Platform)
We have started the development of a ground truth data generation platform based on complex and realistically rendered scenes built in 3D modelling packages such as 3DS Max. The platform includes an export module from 3DSMax with support for complex materials and shade trees such as those developed for the physically based rendering VRay platform. This module exports to the Mitsuba opensource renderer, and includes support for various operations using Mitsuba, as well as rendering on the Inria cluster. The platform is designed to generate ground truth data for learning as well as data for ground truth comparisons for image-based rendering projects in the group.
