In this paper, we propose a region extraction method using chromakey with a two-tone checker pattern background. The proposed method solves the problem in conventional chromakey techniques that foreground objects become transparent if they have the same color with the background. The adjacency condition between two-tone regions of the background and the geometrical information of the background grid lines are utilized for extracting foreground objects. Experimental results show the…

A computer vision based system for a rehabilitation of a human hand

Evaluation of the system shows that presented solution is suitable in cases where accuracy is not very critical and smaller 3D reconstruction deviations do not thwart the process of rehabilitation.



Region Extraction with Chromakey Using Striped Backgrounds

A new region extraction method with chromakey using a two-tone striped background is proposed, utilizing the adjacency condition between two- tone striped areas on the background, and extracting the foreground regions whose colors the authors same with the background.

Chroma Key Using a Checker Pattern Background

The method solves the problem in conventional chroma key techniques that foreground objects become transparent if their colors are the same as the background color by utilizing the adjacency condition between two-tone regions of the background and the geometrical information of thebackground grid line.

A technique for estimating alpha, the proportion in which two colors mix to produce a color at the boundary, is proposed and results show a number of different objects moved from one image to another while maintaining naturalism.

A Bayesian approach to digital matting

This paper proposes a new Bayesian framework for solving the matting problem, i.e. extracting a foreground element from a background image by estimating an opacity for each pixel of the foreground element by using a maximum-likelihood criterion.

Environment matting and compositing

This paper introduces a new process, environment matting, which captures not just a foreground object and its traditional opacity matte from a real-world scene, but also a description of how that
