Video Based Human Motion Capture From Single Video
Motion capture is an effective way of obtaining realistic human motion data. To date, motion capture solutions have required specialized hardware that is expensive. Nowadays, alternative many video based motion capture systems emerged. Calibrated muliple cameras are used in those system to obtain human motion data in vision laboratories. In order to obtain motion data from public videos, some of researchers are working on monocular uncalibrated videos. With large amount of public resources, motion libraries can be constructed to serve animators,game developers etc. But obtaining the pose of an actor from a single uncalibrated video stream seems to be a challenging task. We will review video based human motion capture systems and we will analyze the methods that works on uncalibrated monocular video streams. We will present a candidate method to determine the 3D spatial locations of joints of a human body from a monocular video stream.
