In commercials and motion pictures, computer graphics is often used to achieve special effects, e.g., adding synthetic dinosaurs in “Jurassic Park”. This process usually implies special camera equipment and a careful and time consuming post processing of single frames. We consider a simplified scenario, where synthetic objects are added automatically to a live scene in real-time. Reference points are identified interactively in the first image and tracked in the image sequence in realtime. The… 
Computer generated still images composited with panned landscape video sequences
TLDR
A precise panorama composited from video sequence images is created, in which varying exposure levels due to changing camera view fields can be coped with and any geometrical distortion is eliminated.
Integrating graphics into video image-based camera tracking and filtering
In virtual studios, most of the setting is not constructed in reality but generated synthetically by a graphics computer and mixed into the camera image. A convincing mixing requires very precise
Computer-generated still images composited with panned/zoomed landscape video sequences
TLDR
A novel approach to composited panned/zoomed landscape video sequences (VSs) at a reasonable cost that copes with varying exposure levels due to the camera's changing field of view and eliminates any geometrical distortion.
Rendering of landscapes for environmental assessment
TLDR
R rendering techniques for visual environmental landscape assessment using computer graphics and/or video sequence images are introduced and their validity is discussed by using practical examples.
Creating a precise panorama from fanned video sequence images
TLDR
An approach to offer a precise panoramic image composited from panned video sequence images, which are taken by a video camera on a tripod, which is deinterlaced in order to create a high quality panoroscopic image.
Dynamic active contours for visual tracking
TLDR
This work proposes an efficient, level set based approach for dynamic curve evolution, which addresses the artificial separation of segmentation and prediction while retaining all the desirable properties of the level set formulation.

TLDR
The full level set approach has the potential for tracking objects throughout occlusions, when combined with a suitable collision detection algorithm, and allows for complete topological flexibility (including intersecting curves in the image plane).
New directions in User-System Interaction: augmented reality, ubiquitous and mobile computing
The embodiment of computers in the work place has had a tremendous impact on the field of user-system interaction. Mice and graphic displays are everywhere, the desktop workstations define the

SMART: system for segmentation matching and reconstruction
TLDR
This work performs a rough segmentation of the images to find characteristic geometric primitives of the objects and to reject non characteristic ones whose occurrence is unavoidable during the acquisition process and to calculate the camera positions approximately, which allows the usage of self-calibrating reconstruction algorithm.

TLDR
The authors present a complete method for calibrating a camera, which requires only point matches from image sequences, and shows that it is possible to calibrate a camera just by pointing it at the environment, selecting points of interests, and tracking them in the image while moving the camera with an unknown motion.

TLDR
A complete production system is proposed which makes use of unified geometric models to be shared by CAD, CAM, and visual processing, and can solve a second difficulty in applying 3-dimensional computer vision to industry, namely the problem of the extensive programming effort.
