Analysis of Movie Database and Synthesis of Original Movie
Finished by March 31, 2013

Recent video databases allow the user to quickly and easily access many videos. This research project is developing a system that analyzes such video databases and extracts useful information, which can be utilized for the user to synthesize original movies. There are three goals: 1) a technique to animate a picture by utilizing extracted motion information, 2) a technique to synthesize an image seen from a novel viewpoint by utilizing extracted 3D information, and 3) a technique to synthesize sounds over a silent movie by utilizing extracted information about relationship between sound and motion.
