A new system combines video of a scene from multiple cameras to created 4D visualizations. This makes it possible to view the scene from a variety of angles, place people into new scenes or, in this case, remove someone from a scene.
Carnegie Mellon Approach Requires Neither Studio nor Specialized Cameras
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have demonstrated that they can combine iPhone videos shot “in the wild” by separate cameras to create 4D visualizations that allow viewers to watch action from various angles, or even erase people or objects that temporarily block sight lines.
Imagine a visualization of a wedding reception, where dancers can be seen from as many angles as there were cameras, and the tipsy guest who walked in front of the bridal party is nowhere to be seen.
The videos can be shot independently from variety of vantage points, as might occur at a wedding or birthday celebration, said Aayush Bansal, a Ph.D. student in CMU’s Robotics Institute. It also is possible to record actors in one setting and then insert them into another, he added.
Bansal and his colleagues worked around that limitation by using convolutional neural nets (CNNs), a type of deep learning program that has proven adept at analyzing visual data. They found that scene-specific CNNs could be used to compose different parts of the scene.
The CMU researchers demonstrated their method using up to 15 iPhones to capture a variety of scenes — dances, martial arts demonstrations and even flamingos at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh.
