Plenoptic Modeling for Viewpoint Editing

2 minute read

(Doretto & Soatto, 2003) further extends the previous VBR approach by introducing a model of the spatio-temporal statistics of a collection of images of dynamic scenes as seen from a moving camera. The joint modeling of the moving vantage point together with the statistics of the scene motion is obtained by introducing a time-variant linear dynamical system. The resulting algorithms could be useful for video editing where the motion of a virtual camera can be controlled interactively, as well as for performing stabilized synthetic generation of video sequences.
