Interactive Video Segmentation via Efficient Filtering

By Nicole Brosch, Asmaa Hosni, Christoph Rhemann, and Margrit Gelautz


In [2], we present a fast, interactive segmentation and matting framework for videos. It is based on recent work [5] that recovers high-quality segmentations by smoothing cost maps. Our main contribution is to extend [5] to the temporal domain, as [5] was intended for single images and does not achieve temporally coherent results for videos. Our results are temporally coherent. The binary segmentation can be further refined in a fast, tempo- rally coherent alpha matting step.
