Paper Abstract

It has been demonstrated recently that images obtained under varying focal lengths contain information on the 3D structure of the scene. This depth-from-zoom approach relies on the knowledge of `center of zoom'. Under zoom, image flow expands radially outward from the image center. In real lenses, however, this center is itself moving on a trajectory determined by the zoom action as well as lens manufacture. Therefore, optic flow vectors will follow an arbitrary curvilinear path in the image plane. In this paper we develop a general model for the determination of image flow given a corresponding locus for the center of zoom.
