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… Expand

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. Expand
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. Expand
