The technique makes N copies of the original image, but then applies one single distortion on each copy. the distortion for each copy is different. I repeat: Only one (1) distortion is applied to each copy of the image. The image is not distorted multiple times.jgrauman wrote:Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm not sure that is what I want. Can you clarify? I'm rotating and scaling images that came from several long videos. So I only need to do one rotate/scale per image, not multiple rotates per image. So it doesn't look like this helps, but maybe I'm missing something.
The distortion is modified by the index of the image copy being modified, so each copy (of the original image) gets distorted slightly differentially.
For a video! you already have a sequence of images! As such each image being distorted can be a different frame of the original image. That means in the ONE command you can distort a video, with each frame being distorts slightly differentially to the previous frame. That is while you are rotating the video, the video could still be actually playing as normal!!!!
Cool hey. I'd love a image sequence to try this myself!
This distortion method could eventually become part of a shape morphing technique!
