Temporal random variation of luminance in images can manifest in film and video due to a wide variety of sources. Typical in archived films, it also affects scenes recorded simultaneously with different cameras (e.g. for film special effect), and scenes affected by illumination problems. Many applications in Computer Vision and Image Processing that try to(More)
This paper presents a new expression of the relationship between integral projections and motion in an image pair. The resulting new multiresolution gradient based approach is used to estimate dominant motion in image sequences degraded by random shake. The paper also describes an implementation using the GPU as a coprocessor for the CPU that allows, for(More)
This paper presents a new algorithm for synthesising image texture. Texture synthesis is an important process in image post-production. Previous approaches can be classified as either parametric or nonparametric. Of these nonparametric approaches have achieved the most impressive results. Unfortunately, these methods generally suffer from high computational(More)
We present in this manuscript the results of a comparison study between MOCVD-grown GaN films annealed in a novel high-pressure annealing furnace and those annealed in a conventional tube furnace under flowing argon gas at similar temperatures for similar times. Atomic force microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, photoluminescence and(More)
