Abstract: Motion estimation is currently approximated by the visual displacement field called optical flow. The accuracy of optical flow estimation algorithms has been improving steadily as evidenced by results on the Middlebury optical flow benchmark. Actually, several methods are used to estimate the optical flow, but a good compromise between computational cost and accuracy is hard to achieve. This work presents a combined local-global-total variation (CLG-TV) approach with structure-texture image decomposition. The combination is used to control the propagation phenomena and to gain robustness against illumination changes, influence of texture on the results and sensitivity to outliers. The resulting method is able to compute larger displacements in a reasonable time.
