Video Textures

Computer Vision

 

Project Description:
 

A picture is worth a thousand words. And yet, there are many phenomena, both natural and man-made, that are not adequately captured by a single static photo. A waterfall, a flickering flame, a flag flapping in the breeze – each of these phenomena has an inherently dynamic quality that a single image simply cannot portray. This project is based on an article written by Arno Schodl et al. that introduces a new type of medium, called a video texture, which has qualities somewhere between those of photograph and a video. A video texture provides a continuous infinitely varying stream of images. While the individual frames of a video texture may be repeated from time to time, the video sequence as a whole is never repeated exactly. Video textures can be used in place of digital photos to infuse a static image with dynamic qualities and explicit action.

Project Goal:
 

In this project we will implement the article written by Arno Schodl et al. and try to improve it in its weakness points.
