Example Video Stabilization

From BoofCV

Video stabilization attempts to overlay more recent images on top of a keyframe. This makes it easier to identify objects which are moving relative to the background.

Example File: ExampleVideoStabilization.java

Concepts:

  • Image Stitching
  • Image Stabilization
  • 2D image motion

/**
 * Example of how to stabilizing a video sequence using StitchingFromMotion2D.  Video stabilization is almost
 * the same as creating a video mosaic and the code in this example is a tweaked version of the mosaic example.
 * The differences are that the output size is the same as the input image size and that the origin is never changed.
