Augmented Reality for TV Productions: 3D Human Body Tracking
Participants : Chee Kwang Quah, André Gagalowicz.
A 3D model-based approach is applied to human body tracking for production and post-production applications.
We are currently developing a 3D tracking system using video cameras able to produce outdoor motion capture without the use of markers. A generic 3D human body is used as input. Then, body adjustments are made using images. After positioning the puppet on the first frame, texture is learnt and a tracker has to retrieve the position of the puppet automatically in the rest of the image sequence.
