Simulation of Plenoptic Cameras


In order to create ground truth data for algorithms working on plenoptic camera data, we built a model of a reconfigurable plenoptic camera for Blender. Contrary to other simulations, our model does not heavily simplify the optical system, but contains an objective as well as a microlens array and therefore shows correct image degradation effects.
