Amazing Video Technology Makes Lousy Home Videos Look AwesomeAug 18th, 2008 | By James Lewin | Category: Video, Video Software
Researchers at the Graphics and Imaging Laboratory at the University of Washington have created amazing new software technology for automatically enhancing videos of a static scene using photographs of the same scene.
According to the researchers:
Our system can transfer photographic qualities such as high resolution, high dynamic range and better lighting from the photographs to the video. Additionally, the user can quickly modify the video by editing only a few still images of the scene. Finally, our system allows a user to remove unwanted objects and camera shake from the video.
As the video demo above demonstrates, the technology can make typical consumer videos look awesome and be used to create interesting special effects. The HDR, masking, object removal & camera shake reduction videos are amazing.
This technology is still at the research stage – but I can’t wait to see it make its way to consumer video editing apps.
