This short video demonstrates a new method for synthesizing a transition region between two source images, such that inconsistent color, texture, and structural properties all change gradually from one source to the other. We call this process image melding.
We applied our framework to a broad class of image melding problems involving inconsistent sources: object cloning, stitching challenging panoramas, hole filling from multiple photos, and image harmonization.
The project is a collaboration between UNM Advanced Graphics Lab and Adobe Systems. We will present it in the technical paper session at SIGGRAPH '12 in Los Angeles this August. You can find more information (including a PDF of the paper and additional results) at
