This paper presents an artifact-free texture mapping from multiview images. Mapping multiple images onto a 3D mesh model is not an easy task, because artifacts may appear when two more images are mapped into neighboring meshes. We define a cost function that becomes large when artifacts appear on neighboring meshes. The cost function helps to search the assignment between images and meshes. Experimental results with real images demonstrate the effectiveness of our method.
