A Fusion Approach for Multi-Frame Optical Flow Estimation

10/23/2018 ∙ by Zhile Ren, et al. ∙ 3

To date, top-performing optical flow estimation methods only take pairs of consecutive frames into account. While elegant and appealing, the idea of using more than two frames has not yet produced state-of-the-art results. We present a simple, yet effective fusion approach for multi-frame optical flow that benefits from longer-term temporal cues. Our method first warps the optical flow from previous frames to the current, thereby yielding multiple plausible estimates. It then fuses the complementary information carried by these estimates into a new optical flow field. At the time of submission, our method ranks first among published flow methods in the MPI Sintel and KITTI 2015 benchmarks.
