Who and what are behind the dataset?
The MPI Sintel Dataset addresses limitations of existing optical flow benchmarks. It provides naturalistic video sequences that are challenging for current methods. It is designed to encourage research on long-range motion, motion blur, multi-frame analysis, non-rigid motion.
The dataset contains flow fields, motion boundaries, unmatched regions, and image sequences. The image sequences are rendered with different levels of difficulty.
Sintel is an open source animated short film produced by Ton Roosendaal and the Blender Foundation. Here we have modified the film in many ways to make it useful for optical flow evaluation.
