Automatic Music Videos: Stock Footage 1

An example from my final project in Computational Photography (15-463) at Carnegie Mellon.

Using a library of eight 2-4 second clips, the video was automatically assembled and warped to fit with the music (for some definition of "fit".)

This is a test of the algorithm with real-world footage, meaning lots of background noise, etc.

See vimeo.com/17721677 for a comparison with rendered, geometry-based video clips using the same music track.

See vimeo.com/17773960 for a comparison with the same video clips and different music.
