Example Key Point Based Deformation

From BoofCV

This example shows you key points can be used to deform an image. Here it is used to make it appear as if a wooden man is waving.

Example Code:


  • Image Deformation

Example Code

 * Demonstration on how to use a key point based image deformation. A static image will be modified in real time
 * to make it appear as if the 'man' is waving. These deformation algorithms specify keypoints which match between
 * two images. When the pixel coordinate is moved the pixels are distorted such that they minimize an error function.
