Generating Dynamically Feasible Trajectories for Quadrotor Cameras

When designing trajectories for quad-rotor cameras, it is important that the trajectories respect the dynamics and physical limits of quad-rotor hardware. The trajectories must be feasible. This paper introduces a fast, user-friendly algorithm for generating feasible quad-rotor camera trajectories.

Roto++: Accelerating Professional Rotoscoping Using Shape Manifolds

This paper offers three contributions to accelerate professional rotoscoping: reduction of the number of keyframes that an artist needs to specify, a new interactive tool that reduces the time required to edit each keyframe, and a new professionally rotoscoped dataset that allows real-world evaluation of rotoscoping methods.

Rich360: Optimized Spherical Representation From Structured Panoramic Camera Arrays

This paper proposes Rich360, a novel system for creating and viewing a 360˚ panoramic video obtained from a structured panoramic rig. Rich360 minimizes inter-view disparities using a deformable spherical projection surface and conserves the richness of the input videos with a non-uniform spherical ray sampling.
