In this paper we present SoccerMan, a reconstruction system designed to generate animated, virtual 3D views from two synchronous video sequences of a short part of a given soccer game. After the reconstruction process, which needs also some manual interaction, the virtual 3D scene can be examined and ”replayed” from any viewpoint. Players are modeled as so-called animated texture objects, i.e. 2D player shapes are extracted from video and texture-mapped onto rectangles in 3D space. Animated… CONTINUE READING
