    Automatic camera navigation for time-variant objects



    We present a novel method for automatically generating camera navigation for scenes in which data location varies over time. Optimal views of a scene for a given time are first developed based on prior literature. These optimal views are then applied to the novel approach of generating smooth camera paths based on constraints designed to minimize visual disorientation.
