A static background image is augmented with a rotating dragon model. At first, the model is rendered with arbitrary lighting. The second step adds ambient occlusion, followed by a drop shadow on the reconstructed 3D geometry of the floor and its material properties. Finally, an irradiance map from a light probe previously placed into the scene is generated with the help of spherical harmonic analysis to render the correct material appearance under the real lighting conditions.
