We present a technique for view-dependent texture mapping that attempts to minimise the perceived artefacts that can arise from image blending. These artefacts result from imperfect image registration; typically due to un-representative scene geometry; or scene motion during capture. Our method draws inspiration from work in image mosaicing; but uses a metric based on perception of Mach bands that we also use to quantitatively evaluate the method. We discuss the implications of this work to creating a fully perception-based method of image-based rendering.

Keywords: Image blending; image-based rendering; perceptual methods
