Abstract
A combination of spatial transformation and image segmentation is used to compensate for non-uniform intensity changes in moving scenes. The method efficiently tracks movements such that the motion vectors alone can be employed to represent a moving object with complex motion. Using fast transformation and interpolation algorithms, it is shown that while the compression efficiency of the presented method is far superior to that of the conventional full search block-matching motion estimation, its computational complexity is still affordable.
