Video Object Segmentation and Compositing

By Margrit Gelautz, Michael Bleyer, Christoph Rhemann, Danijela Markovic, and Efstathios Stavrakis


In this presentation, we focus on techniques for video object segmentation and the subsequent combination of the extracted object(s) with another video scene (`video compositing´) from a computer vision point of view. We present results obtained by state-of-the art stereo and motion segmentation algorithms and discuss the special requirements of video compositing tasks on the segmentation algorithm. In this context, we also address special problems arising along object boundaries and related occlusions and demonstrate the need for boundary matting techniques.
