Image-Based Rendering (IBR) algorithms generate high quality photo-realistic imagery without the burden of de-tailed modeling and expensive realistic rendering. Recent methods have different strengths and weaknesses, depending on 3D reconstruction quality and scene content. Each algorithm operates with a set of hypotheses about the scene and the novel views, resulting in different quality/speed trade-offs in different image regions. We present a principled approach to select the algorithm with the best quality/speed trade-off in each region. To do this, we propose a Bayesian approach, modeling the rendering quality, the rendering process and the validity of the assumptions of each algorithm. We then choose the algorithm to use withMaximum a Posteriori estimation. We demonstrate the utility of our approach on recent IBR algorithms which useover segmentation and are based on planar reprojection and shape-preserving warps respectively. Our algorithm selects the best rendering algorithm for each superpixel in a preprocessing step; at runtime our selective IBR uses this choice to achieve significant speed up at equivalent or better quality compared to previous algorithms.
