User-assisted reflection detection and feature point tracking

Mohamed A. Elgharib, François Pitite, Anil Kokaram, Venkatesh Saligrama
2013 Proceedings of the 10th European Conference on Visual Media Production - CVMP '13  
The third contribution of this paper is an application for reflection detection. Here we explore better feature point tracking for the regions detected as reflection.  ...  User feedback is common in post-production video manipulation tools. Hence in the second contribution we propose an effective way of integrating few user-assisted masks to improve detection rates.  ...  USER ASSISTANCE FOR ROBUST DE-TECTION Missed detections could occur if the reflections contain weak feature points (see Fig. 2 , red).  ...

User-assisted Video Reflection Removal [article]

Amgad Ahmed, Suhong Kim, Mohamed Elgharib, Mohamed Hefeeda
2020 arXiv   pre-print
This, however, is a challenging and ill-posed problem as there is an infinite number of valid decompositions. To address this problem, we propose a user-assisted method for video reflection removal.  ...  We show that user-assistance significantly improves the layer separation results.  ...  Color information is essential for the tracker to detect and track a feature, and if there is not enough color information, target tracking is hard or not possible.  ...
