In this paper we propose an interactive method for the segmentation of objects in video. We aim to exploit multiple modalities to reduce the dependency on color discrimination alone. Given an initial segmentation for the first and last frame of a video sequence, we aim to propagate the segmentation to the intermediate frames of the sequence. Video frames are first segmented into superpixels. The segmentation propagation is then regarded as a superpixels labeling problem. The problem is… CONTINUE READING
