In the world of augmented and virtual reality, creating 3D environments can be difficult. This becomes a problem because it stops people from making their own personalized spaces for games and other uses. The problem is that existing software fails to make detailed, high-quality, realistic 3D rooms. These rooms end up looking weird because of poorly placed or repeated objects since the software only focuses on small parts, and not the whole room.
Now, there’s a solution to this problem: ControlRoom3D. Researchers from Meta GenAI, RWTH Aachen University, and the Technical University of Munich developed an AI method called ControlRoom3D. This method lets users create a rough layout of a room using boxes. Then, it uses those boxes to make a 3D room that looks good and matches the layout.
ControlRoom3D does this by using different techniques. First, it makes a 360-degree view of the room so that everything looks the same style. Then, it uses the size of the boxes to make sure the textures in the 3D room are the right size. Finally, it adds any missing pieces to complete the room.
This method outperforms other methods in creating realistic 3D rooms. It makes it easy for anyone, not just 3D experts, to make their custom 3D rooms. This advances lots of different areas, including AR and VR, and other fields that use 3D models. Overall, ControlRoom3D opens up new ways for people to make unique virtual spaces.
