ABSTRACT
One approach to performing motion estimation on syn-
thetic animations is to treat them as video sequences
and use standard image-based motion estimation meth-
ods. Alternatively, we can take advantage of informa-
tion used in rendering the animation to guide the motion
estimation algorithm. This information includes the 3D
movements of the objects in the scene and the projec-
tion transformations from 3D world space into screen
space. In this paper we examine how to use this high
level object motion information to perform fast, accu-
rate block-based motion estimation for synthetic anima-
tions.
The optical ow eld is a 2D vector eld describ-
ing the translational motion of each pixel from frame
to frame. Our motion estimation algorithm rst com-
