Abstract

Structure is one of the important features for image analysis and synthesis. In this talk, we will introduce three of our recent advances and applications with structure-aware analysis and compositing methods. In the first work, a novel foreground extraction method based on structure prediction and consistency check is presented. It tackles the problem of related methods for the structural scenes. The second work discusses how we enhanced the realism of sketch and portrait paintings through optimized image compositing, based only on a moderately sized photo collection. The third work presents an interesting tangible interface based on markerless tracking. A user can assemble real objects by intuitively following the live-feedback 3D AR instructions.
