Optical flow tracking (CPSC 505 students only)
Another way to detect shot boundaries is to track corners between successive frames.
(3 marks) Tracking corner feature. Track corners by first detecting the corners and then track them both forwards and backwards. The distance between the original point and the tracked point after forward/backward should be below a threshold that you can choose. The OpenCV APIs are indicated in the provided code
Plot the number of tracked corners. Is the number of tracked corners useful for determining shot boundaries?
(3 marks) Read one of the most recent (2 years) optical flow papers in a major computer vision conference (CVPR, ICCV and ECCV). Write a few paragraphs describing how the method in the paper differs from the techniques described in 425.
