Paper Abstract

The present paper proposes a method for interpolation of grayvalued images such as electron microphotographs for medical use. The method consists of four parts. The first is the extraction of feature regions from a pair of grayvalued key frame images. The second is making correspondence to determine disparities between each feature regions. The third is the interpolation of these disparities from one key frame to the other. The last is the generation of inbetweening images. In this part texture mapping is used. This method can be applied to not only medical uses but also computer animation and visual communications. This method can also interpolate color images without any additional techniques.
