Testing of depth propagation in YUVsoft DepthPropagation and Dimenco @depth.
Immediately tell some starting points:
1. During testing, I compared only the result of the work on propagation of the depth map between keyframes.
2. While working on a large project is not possible to select individual settings for each shot. Therefore, we used the following settings:
DepthPropagation: step = 2; depth smothing mode = double bilateral; depth correction; propagation from previous frame; depth smoothing radius = 5;
3. We usually use minimum amount of keyframes in each shots (often the first and last frames).
4. Source - bmp after applying noise reduction.
5. Keyframes are drawn with not enough quality.
I will try to reveal the reasons for these preconditions in the following articles.
Unfortunately, trial was extremely limited.
I rendered only one shot.
Shot duration is 98 frames. In the picture there are the movement of objects and camera movement.
To tell the truth the results of both algorithms are not impressive.
But in my subjective opinion DP results is much better.
