Pravin Bhat & friends at the University of Washington have put together a rather eye-popping video that demonstrates Using Photographs to Enhance Videos of a Static Scene. I think you’ll dig it. (The removal of the No Parking sign is especially impressive.) [Via Jeff Tranberry]
The work builds upon research by Adobe’s Aseem Agarwala (who was instrumental in bringing Auto-Blend to Photoshop CS3). Adobe Senior Principal Scientist (and UW prof.) David Salesin is helping facilitate more collaboration between Adobe teams & academia, recruiting full-time hires like Aseem & sponsoring visiting researchers like Hany Farid.
(Note: As always, please don’t take my mentioning of various tech demos as a hint about any specific feature showing up in a particular Adobe product. I just post things that I find interesting & inspiring.)
