Here’s a breakthrough in video effects. Researchers at the University of Washington have figured out a "Spacetime Fusion Technique" that uses pictures from a digital still camera to enhance video in a variety of ways. For instance, you can make blurry video sharper, fix exposure problems, remove unwanted objects or create high dynamic range (HDR) videos. This is downright amazing.
To use it, shoot some video and then take a few still photos with an ordinary digital camera of the same scenes, and then this remarkable software can work its miracles. What’s the catch? So far, it only works when objects in the scene are stationary, and the unoptimized software takes five minutes to render each relatively small 800x600 frame.
