shot change


Shot change detection is an essential step in video content analysis. However, automatic shot change detection often suffers high false detection rates when there are camera or object movements. In this paper, we propose an approach to solve this problem based on local keypoint matching of the video frames. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm is effective for all kinds of shot changes.
