Video Rewrite

Christoph Bregler, Michele Covell, Malcolm Slaney
1997 Proceedings of the 24th annual conference on Computer graphics and interactive techniques - SIGGRAPH '97  
Video Rewrite uses existing footage to create automatically new video of a person mouthing words that she did not speak in the original footage.  ...  This stitching process automatically corrects for differences in head position and orientation between the mouth images and the background footage.  ...  Instead, we use computer-vision techniques to label the face and to identify the mouth and its shape. A major hurdle to automatic annotation is the low resolution of the images.  ...

Robust Statistical Estimation Applied to Automatic Lip Segmentation [chapter]

B. Goswami, W. Christmas, J. Kittler
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Automatic lip segmentation is an indispensable pre-requisite in face-video applications that make use of the mouth-region.  ...  It uses a robust statistical estimator to identify the different regions in the image and then performs post-processing based on cluster colour and shape to identify the lip region.  ...  Following dimensionality reduction using Principal Components Analysis, this model is then used to generate a series of mouth shape estimates.  ...

Visualization of a Fish Behavior using Successive Three-Dimensional Shape Modeling

Junta Doi, Tetsuo Miyake
2000 Journal of Computing and Information Technology  
This procedure is entirely automatic requiring no manual operation and appears to have some considerable utility in tracking and measurement of moving objects.  ...  Visualization of a three-dimensional fish behavior based on the successive feature extraction using the time sequential three-dimensional shape modeling is reported.  ...  From the image acquisition for the threedimensional shape approximation to the feature extraction for the behavior analysis, the process is carried out automatically without manual operation.  ...

Interpreting Hand-Over-Face Gestures [chapter]

Marwa Mahmoud, Peter Robinson
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We define three hand cues for encoding hand-over-face gestures, namely hand shape, hand action and facial region occluded, serving as a first step in automating the interpretation process.  ...  We analyse hand-over-face gestures in a corpus of naturalistic labelled expressions and propose the use of those gestures as a novel affect cue for automatic inference of cognitive mental states.  ...  Although they suggest that different positions and actions of the hand occluding the face can imply different affective states, no quantitative analysis has been carried out.  ...
