Tour Into the Picture (TIP) is a method for generating a sequence of walk-through images from a single reference image. By navigating a 3D scene model constructed from the image, TIP provides convincing 3D effects. This paper presents a comprehensive scheme for creating walk-through images from a video sequence by generalizing the idea of TIP. The purpose of this work is to let users experience the feel of navigating into a video sequence with their own interpretation and imagination about a

To generate images from new viewpoints, we first extract the background and the foreground information from the video, and then exploit the notion of a vanishing circle to construct a 3D scene model. The proposed scheme covers various types of video films of dynamic scenes such as sports coverage, cartoon animation, and movie films, in which objects are continuously changing their shapes and locations. It can also be used to produce a variety of synthetic video sequences by importing and merging dynamic foreign objects with the original video.
