  • Modelling Non-Rigid Dynamic Scenes from Multi-View Image Sequences, J.-P. Pons, R. Keriven and O. Faugeras
ABSTRACT: This chapter focuses on the problem of obtaining a complete spatio-temporal description of some objects undergoing a non-rigid motion, given several calibrated and synchronized videos of the scene. Using stereovision and scene flow methods in conjunction, the three-dimensional shape and the non-rigid three-dimensional motion field of the objects can be recovered. We review the unrealistic photometric and geometric assumptions which plague existing methods.
A novel method based on deformable surfaces is proposed to alleviate some of these limitations.
