Download results from the paper. We propose to use the saccade-viewer to compare images qualitatively.

Prerequisites

1. Get YouTube videos

The first step is to gather videos from some arbitrary sources. We use YouTube to get some videos with diverse content and recording equipment. To download these videos, we use the python-tool youtube-dl.

pip install youtube-dl --user

Some examples are given in download_videos.sh. Note, you can use whatever mp4 video you want to use for this task. In fact, for this re-implementation we use some other videos, which also work well.

2. Generate Synthetic Motion Blur

Now, we use optical flow to synthetically add motion blur. We used the most simple OpticalFlow method, wich provides reasonable results (we average frames anyway):

cd synthblur
mkdir build  && cd build
cmake ..
make all

To convert a video input.mp4 into a blurry version, run

./synthblur/build/convert "input.mp4"

This gives you multiple outputs:

  • 'input.mp4_blurry.mp4'
  • 'input.mp4_sharp.mp4'
  • 'input.mp4_flow.mp4'

Adding blur from synthetic camera shake is done on-the-fly (see psf.py).

3. Building a Database

For performance reasons we randomly sample frames from all videos beforehand and store 5+5 consecutive frames (sharp+blurry) into an LMDB file (for training/validation/testing).

I use

#!/bin/bash
for i in `seq 1 30`; do
    python data_sampler.py --pattern '/graphics/scratch/wieschol/YouTubeDataset/train/*_blurry.mp4' --lmdb /graphics/scratch/wieschol/YouTubeDataset/train$i.lmdb --num 5000
done

for i in `seq 1 10`; do
    python data_sampler.py --pattern '/graphics/scratch/wieschol/YouTubeDataset/val/*_blurry.mp4' --lmdb /graphics/scratch/wieschol/YouTubeDataset/val$i.lmdb --num 5000
done

To visualize the training examples just run

python data_provider.py --lmdb /graphics/scratch/wieschol/YouTubeDataset/train1.lmdb --show --num 5000

Training

This re-implementation uses TensorPack instead of the used custom library for the paper. Starting training is done by

python learning_blind_motion_deblurring.py --gpu 0,1 --data path/to/lmdb-files/

Results

See the release section for full-resolution images produced by our approach.

Further experiments

We further tried a convLSTM/convGRU and a multi-scale approach (instead of the simple test from the paper). These script are available in additional_scripts.

Notes

I re-trained a slightly larger model in TensorPack just for testing the TensorPack library some months ago. It seems to have similar performance (although it is not compatible with this GitHub project). Find the inference code/weights here.
