Camera Take Reconstruction

By Maia Zaharieva, Matthias Zeppelzauer, Christian Breiteneder, and Dalibor Mitrovic


In this paper we focus on a novel issue in the field of video retrieval stemming from film analysis, namely the investigation of film montage patterns. For this purpose it is first necessary to reconstruct the original film sequences, i.e. the camera takes. For the decision whether or not two shots occurring anywhere in a film stem from the same take we use edge histograms and local feature tracking. Evaluation results on experimental film material (where montage patterns are of great importance) show a very good performance of the algorithm proposed.
