Abstract
Many natural images contain reflections and transparency,
i.e., they contain mixtures of reflected and transmitted light.
When viewed from a moving camera, these appear as the su-
perpositionofcomponentlayerimagesmovingrelativetoeach
other. The problem of multiple motion recovery has been pre-
viously studied by a number of researchers. However, no one
has yet demonstrated how to accurately recover the compo-
nent images themselves. In this paper we develop an opti-
mal approach to recovering layer images and their associated
motions from an arbitrary number of composite images. We
develop two different techniques for estimating the compo-
nent layer images given known motion estimates. The first
approach uses constrained least squares to recover the layer
