Creatures Great and SMAL: Recovering the shape and motion of animals from video (ACCV 2018, Oral)

Benjamin Biggs, Thomas Roddick, Andrew Fitzgibbon, Roberto Cipolla

A system to recover the 3D shape and motion of a wide variety of quadruped animals from video. We overcome the limited availability of animal motion capture data and ensure generalizability to real-world sequences by training on synthetic silhouette images. We apply our method on manually-segmented and automatically-segmented monocular animal videos and require no other form of user intervention.
