ABSTRACT
Most global motion estimation (GME) methods are oriented
to video coding while video object segmentation either as-
sume no global motion (GM) or directly adopt a coding-
oriented method to compensate GM. This paper proposes a
hierarchical differential GME oriented to object segmenta-
tion. A combination of 3-step search and motion vector pre-
diction is proposed for initial estimate. Two robust estima-
tors are also proposed: to estimate global motion in the first
frame and to reject outliers using object information. Sub-
jective and objective results show that the proposed method
is more robust and faster than the reference methods.
