UnWrap: 3D Surface Models From Video

Sign in to queue

Description

New from Microsoft Research’s UnWrap team (Alex Rav Acha - Weizmann institute of Science and Pushmeet Kohli, Carsten Rother and Andrew Fitzgibbon - Microsoft Research Cambridge), comes a technology which, among other things, allows you to generate 3D surface models from video. That extracted image, called the “unwrap mosaic,” can then be edited, manipulated, and then re-composited back into the original video. This technology could be used for resizing objects, repainting textures, copying/cutting/pasting objects, and deforming objects. To learn more, check out the UnWrap website and video.

    That works incredibly well. Stuff like this needs to get out there and be put to use. It's unfortunate (in infuriating) that great work done by Microsoft Research probably won't get the credit it deserves because it's associated with MS.
