Video Primal Sketch: A Generic Middle-Level Representation of Video
This paper presents a middle-level video representation named Video Primal Sketch (VPS), which integrates two regimes of models: i) sparse coding model using static or moving primitives to explicitly represent moving corners, lines, feature points, etc., ii) FRAME/MRF model with spatio-temporal filters to implicitly represent textured motion, such as water and fire, by matching feature statistics, i.e. histograms. This paper makes three contributions: i) learning a dictionary of video primitives as parametric generative model; ii) studying the Spatio-Temporal FRAME (ST-FRAME) model for modeling and synthesizing textured motion; and iii) developing a parsimonious hybrid model for generic video representation. VPS selects the proper representation automatically and is compatible with highlevel action representations. In the experiments, we synthesize a series of dynamic textures, reconstruct real videos and show varying VPS over the change of densities causing by the scale transition ...
