Chantry's homage to expired expertise, and his encouraged use of Xerox machines and X-Acto blade cuts of published fabric, created a much-copied variety through the grunge interval and beyond.

Sample text

The ball region contains only a few pixels, and due to low bandwidth of colour channel, its colour is strongly affected by the background colour. c Chroma noise caused by PAL cross-colour effect. This may introduce false ball candidates along the court lines. d Multiple balls in one frame. A new ball (left) is thrown in by a ball boy, while the ball used for play (middle) is still in the scene. There is another ball (right) in the ball boy’s hand. e A wristband can look very similar to the ball, and can form a smooth trajectory as the player strikes the ball ball is also subject to occlusion and sudden change of motion direction.

The definition of pair-wise compatibility of the paths is straightforward. Under the assumption that two objects cannot produce the same candidate in a frame, two paths are said to be compatible if and only if they do not share any common support. It should be noted, however, two paths that do not share any common node are not necessarily compatible, because different nodes can have common supports. Algorithm 1 The path reduction algorithm Input: Set P with p paths, and empty set B . Output: A reduced set P .

Striped red squares the manually specified source node and destination node. Red squares the shortest path between the source node and the destination node To this end, we need to define the relative quality and compatibility of the paths. Recall that the weight of a path is the sum of the weights of all edges the path goes through. We then define the length of a path to be the size of the union of the support sets in all its nodes. It should be noted that according to the definitions of weight and length of a path, the term “shortest path” used in the previous sections should have been “lightest path”.
