Display resolution is frequently exceeded by available image resolution. Recently, apparent display resolution enhancement techniques (ADRE) have demonstrated how characteristics of the human visual system can be exploited to provide super-resolution on high refresh rate displays. In this paper we address the problem of generalizing the apparent display resolution enhancement technique to conventional videos of arbitrary content. We propose an optimization-based approach to continuously

The optimization takes the optimal velocity, smoothness and similarity into account to compute an appropriate trajectory. Additionally, we provide an intuitive user interface which allows to guide the algorithm interactively and preserve important compositions within the video. We present a user study evaluating apparent rendering quality and demonstrate versatility of our method on a variety of general test scenes.
