Abstract

Digital editing technology is highly popular as it enables to easily change photos and add to them artificial objects. Conversely, video editing is still challenging and mainly left to the professionals. Even basic video manipulations involve complicated software tools that are typically not adopted by the amateur user. In this paper we propose a system that allows an amateur user to performs a basic matchmove by adding an inlay to a video. Our system does not require any previous experience and relies on a simple user interaction. We allow adding 3D objects and volumetric textures to virtually any video. We demonstrate the method's applicability on a variety of videos downloaded from the web.
