Alexander Klaser Thesis

The video processing is completely rewritten using ffmpeg (it should work much better now, let me know if there are problems!), there is also support for using video shot-boundaries now, and there are some features for computing descriptors within bounding boxes. Ivans format point-type x y t sigma2 tau2 confidence desc. There are tools like zcat, zless that deal with compressed text files and that are handy to work with.

Btw, over the last time i updated the faq based on the emails that i got. For more information on the scales, please have a look at the faq point all the information about the descriptor, its xyt-position, etc. I discovered that it doesnt work with your tool.

Sorry, the 32bit version is not supported for now. More concrete, given a point (x, y, t, xy-scale, t-scale), the descriptor center position is at (x, y, t), its width, height, and depth are computed as where --sigma-support and --tau-support are two parameters that need to be chosen (we evaluated them in our ). Then, i usually apply the following set of commands to compute hog3d descriptors for harris3d.

You can even use gzipgunzip to compress data harris3d hoghof points. It helps to use the -max-scale options (or -max-stride). Here an example according to our experiments in that evaluation.

If we consider the original video unscaled, i. Yep, you can do this, you need to create a file with the (x, y, t, sigma, tau) positions of the descriptors you would like to compute in the video, this should exactly do what you are looking for. If you have problems running the tool, if you found bugs, if you need support for different platforms than linux, feel free to.

Simply use the option --dump-frame for a couple of consecutive frames and inspect them visually. The lowest temporal scale (1) refers to a stride of 5 frames (i.

    Another note, doing dense sampling, --tau-support and --sigma-support have no influence on the descriptor size since its size will be determined by -xy-stride--xy-nstride, --t-stride--t-nstride, and --scale-overlap. By default, descriptor parameters are employed that have been learned on the training set of the hollywood2 actions database. The video processing is completely rewritten using ffmpeg (it should work much better now, let me know if there are problems!), there is also support for using video shot-boundaries now, and there are some features for computing descriptors within bounding boxes. Here an example according to our experiments in that evaluation. If you do dense sampling, than there is a parameter that controls the overlap of neigboring descriptors which is --scale-overlap.

    Sigma (or xy-scale) is the characteristic spatial scale and tau (or t-scale) is the characteristic temporal scale. Hog3d cells in x and y direction --t-ncells arg (5) number of hog3d cells in time --npix arg (4) number of hyper pixel support for each hog3d cell, i. Different scales means that the cuboid size of the descriptor is different. Please note also that this tool is mentioned only for scientific or personal use. Internally, the tool is working with floating points, also for dense sampling.

    There are several parameters for dense sampling, see dense sampling options in the --help output below. For more information on the scales, please have a look at the faq point all the information about the descriptor, its xyt-position, etc. Hollywood2 training dataset (see explanations at the end) is employed if this flag is set, the parameter settings optimized on the kth training dataset are being used.
