summary It is very important to simulate the landscape when planning large scale buildings, such as skyscrapers and high-rise condominiums, and high-level visual simulation is anticipated in Japan. A landscape simulator using scale models which we have developed is useful to obtain eye-level images. Computer graphics is also useful to obtain eye-level images because of the high quality. This paper reports on a visual simulation system using a new image composition technique to combine the scenery of scale models recorded by the simulator with computer graphics images. The video images of scale models are obtained an eye-level images from a small CCD video camera controlled by a personal computer. The background images including the sky and clouds are created as CG images. A real-time image composition technique has been developed by means of a video editing system to combine the video images of scale models with the CG images. We show the potential of this hybrid simulation method as a useful technique for visual simulation.
