    Camera motion estimation in ocean scene


    CG and Photo-realistic image composition in ocean scenes is frequently used in movies and TV advertisement. For complete image composition, we need camera motion data. In the case of an ocean scene, camera tracking is a very difficult task because it’s impossible to use calibration tool in outdoor environment. Auto-calibration algorithm proposed by Pollefeys is also not appropriate because natural features like KLT can’t be extracted from ocean background. We propose a simple, practical method for solving camera motion tracking using previous knowledge about background structure. We applied our method to the production of a commercial movie, ‘Hanbando’ and the result was satisfactory.
