Two Minute Papers – Time Lapse Videos From Community Photos

Building time lapse videos from community photographs is an incredibly difficult and laborious task: these photos were taken at a different part of the year, from different times of the day, with different viewpoints and cameras. A good algorithm should try to equalize these images and bring them to a common denominator to get rid of the commonly seen flickering effect. Researchers at the University of Washington and Google nailed this regularization in their newest work that they showcased at SIGGRAPH 2015. Check out the video for the details!
