Summary
The measurement of human motion (Motion Capture) is an important algorithmic problem in computer vision and computer graphics. At the Max Planck Institute for Informatics we develop new algorithms to reconstruct dynamic models of humans at an unprecedented level of detail from only a handful of multi-view video streams. The reconstructed models consist of detailed 3D geometry, accurate motion data, as well as high resolution surface texture. Our algorithms are not only suitable for dynamic scene reconstruction, but can also be used in other domains, such as advanced video editing.
