Paper Abstract

With the currently existing shot change detection algorithms, abrupt changes are detected fairly well. It is thus more challenging to detect gradual changes, including fades, dissolves, and wipes, as these are often missed or falsely detected. In this paper, we focus on the detection of wipes. The proposed algorithm begins by processing the visual rhythm, a portion of the DC image sequence. It is a single image, a sub-sampled version of a full video, in which the sampling is performed in a predetermined and systematic fashion. The visual rhythm contains distinctive patterns or visual features for many different types of video effects. The different video effects manifest themselves differently on the visual rhythm. In particular, wipes appear as curves, which run from the top to the bottom of the visual rhythm. Thus, using the visual rhythm, it becomes possible to automatically detect wipes, simply by determining various lines and curves on the visual rhythm.
