ECSE 6620 - Computer Vision for Visual Effects

This course describes the computer vision problems that underlie modern visual effects in movies, in which original video footage is transformed or augmented to create fantastic, yet plausible environments. The course provides a critical overview of the important literature for several problem categories, describing “under-the-hood” concepts and algorithms in mathematical detail. In many cases, the relevant academic research is only a few years old and has only recently been applied to movies, TV shows, and commercials.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: MATH 2010, CSCI 1200, and some familiarity with digital image editing tools or techniques.

When Offered: Fall term odd-numbered years.

Cross Listed: Cross listed as ECSE 4620. Students cannot receive credit for both this course and ECSE 4620.

Credit Hours: 3
