Recent Submissions

  • Using ECPs for Interactive Applications in Virtual Cinematography 

    Wu, Hui-Yin; Li, Tsai-Yen; Christie, Marc (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    This paper introduces an interactive application of our previous work on the Patterns language as creative assistant for editing cameras in 3D virtual environments. Patterns is a set of vocabulary, which was inspired by ...
  • Film Ties: A Web-based Virtual 3D Lab for Teaching the Film Art from Script to Blocking 

    Bares, William; Requierme, Caroline; Obisesan, Elizabeth (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    Film production education programs include hands-on training in script writing, planning blocking of performers and cameras on set, camera operation, editing to select the best footage at each beat of the story, and expert ...
  • Design of an Intelligent Navigation System for Participative Computer Animation 

    Liu, Iou-Shiuan; Li, Tsai-Yen; Christie, Marc (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    In this paper, we will propose a novel way of interactive entertainment, called Participative Computer Animation, allowing a user to participate in a computer animated story as an observer. We consider this form of ...
  • Making Movies from Make-Believe Games 

    Barbulescu, Adela; Garcia, Maxime; Vaufreydaz, Dominique; Cani, Marie Paule; Ronfard, Rémi (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    Pretend play is a storytelling technique, naturally used from very young ages, which relies on object substitution to represent the characters of the imagined story. We propose "Make-believe", a system for making movies ...
  • Pano2Vid: Automatic Cinematography for Watching 360° Videos 

    Su, Yu-Chuan; Jayaraman, Dinesh; Grauman, Kristen (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    We introduce the novel task of Pano2Vid --- automatic cinematography in panoramic 360° videos. Given a 360° video, the goal is to direct an imaginary camera to virtually capture natural-looking normal field-of-view (NFOV) ...
  • A Probabilistic Logic Programming Approach to Automatic Video Montage 

    Aerts, Bram; Goedemé, Toon; Vennekens, Joost (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    Hiring a professional camera crew to cover an event such as a lecture, sports game or musical performance may be prohibitively expensive. The CAMETRON project aims at drastically reducing this cost by developing an (almost) ...
  • Automatic Camera Selection and PTZ Canvas Steering for Autonomous Filming of Reality TV 

    Callemein, Timothy; Ranst, Wiebe Van; Goedemé, Toon (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    Reality TV shows that follow people in their day-to-day lives are not a new concept. However, the traditional methods used in the industry require a lot of manual labor and need the presence of at least one physical camera ...
  • Zooming On All Actors: Automatic Focus+Context Split Screen Video Generation 

    Kumar, Moneish; Gandhi, Vineet; Ronfard, Rémi; Gleicher, Michael (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    Stage performances can be easily captured using a high resolution camera but these are often difficult to watch because actor faces are too small. We present a novel approach to create a split screen video that incorporates ...
  • Analyzing Elements of Style in Annotated Film Clips 

    Wu, Hui-Yin; Galvane, Quentin; Lino, Christophe; Christie, Marc (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    This paper presents an open database of annotated film clips together with an analysis of elements of film style related to how the shots are composed, how the transitions are performed between shots and how the shots are ...
  • Five Challenges for Intelligent Cinematography and Editing 

    Ronfard, Rémi (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    In this position paper, we propose five challenges for advancing the state of the art in intelligent cinematography and editing by taking advantage of the huge quantity of cinematographic data (movies) and metadata (movie ...
  • CaMor: Screw Interpolation between Perspective Projections of Partial Views of Rectangular Images 

    Raghuraman, Gokul; Barrash, Nicholas; Rossignac, Jarek (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    CaMor is a tool for generating an animation from a single drawing or photograph that represents a partial view of a perspective projection of a planar shape or image that contains portions of only 3 edges of an unknown ...
  • Inferring the Structure of Action Movies 

    Potapov, Danila; Douze, Matthijs; Revaud, Jérôme; Harchaoui, Zaid; Schmid, Cordelia (The Eurographics Association, 2017)

  • Implementing Hitchcock - the Role of Focalization and Viewpoint 

    Galvane, Quentin; Ronfard, Rémi (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    Focalization and viewpoint are important aspects of narrative movie-making that need to be taken into account by cinematography and editing. In this paper, we argue that viewpoint can be determined from the first principles ...
