We describe a system for generating coherent movies from a collection of unedited videos. The generation process is guided by one or more input keyframes, which determine the content of the generated video. The basic mechanism involves similarity analysis using the histogram intersection function. The function is applied to spatial pyramid histograms computed on the video frames in the collection using Dense SIFT features. A two-directional greedy path finding algorithm is used to select and
