Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a novel method synthesizing a series of continuous and realistic intermediate views between a pair of reference images without 3D knowledge. The synthesizing procedure consists of four main steps: segmentation, image pre-warping, view morphing and image post-warping. By KLT tracker the feature correspondence between a pair of reference images can be found accurately and robustly. Therefore, the fundamental matrix constructed from the correspondence has enough dependability. Based on fundamental matrix, the scanlines number and coordinates can be computed in order to pre-warp the reference image. Morphing the pre-warped virtual image between the pair of reference images across the positions of the virtual view point, a series of continuous and realistic intermediate views can be constructed. By post-warping the interpolated views, the virtual images can be obtained. And they are very similar to the actual ones which can be seen in real environment. View morphing relies on the correspondence of feature exclusively. Since KLT tracker automatically builds the robust correspondence of feature, virtual images are synthesized more accurately in our method than in other previous methods. Experimental Result shows that the higher quality correspondence of feature causes a realistic visual effect in morphing.
