In this paper, a quasi-automatic video matting approach which can preserve the temporal consistency of the alpha mattes is presented. “Quasi-automatic” means that it only needs a few user interactions on the first frame. A new algorithm which incorporates the Bayesian Estimation, Weighted Kernel Density Estimation (WKDE) and graph cut is presented to automatically and accurately segment each frame into bilayer. And then a GMM (Gaussian Mixture Model) based algorithm is used to transform the… CONTINUE READING
