Abstract

When dynamic objects are captured by a camera, motion blur inevitably occurs. Such a blur is sometimes considered as just a noise, however, it sometimes gives an important effect to add dynamism in the scene for photographs or videos. Unlike the similar effects, such as defocus blur, which is now easily controlled even by smartphones, motion blur is still uncontrollable and makes undesired effects on photographs. In this paper, an unified framework to add motion blur on per-object basis is proposed. In the method, multiple frames are captured without motion blur and they are accumulated to create motion blur on target objects. To capture images without motion blur, shutter speed must be short, however, it makes captured images dark, and thus, a sensor gain should be increased to compensate it. Since a sensor gain causes a severe noise on image, we propose a color compensation algorithm based on non-linear filtering technique for solution. Another contribution is that our technique can be used to make HDR images for fast moving objects by using multi-exposure images. In the experiments, effectiveness of the method is confirmed by ablation study using several data sets.
