This is the source code for the project PatchTable, presented at ACM SIGGRAPH 2015. PatchTable speeds up patch queries by making a precomputed index data structure. The precomputation is assumed to be an offline process that can take seconds to minutes.
Currently this code runs on Mac and Windows.
The code can be used for non-commercial research purposes. For a commercial license, contact the authors.

The dependency libraries should be installed:
PatchTable can be built on Mac OS 10.10:
cd patchtable/proj make -j % Parallel build
PatchTable can be built on Windows 7 64-bit Operating System with Visual Studio 2013:
- The user needs to change project property->Configuration Properties->VC++ Directories to point to their own directory and add the dependency libraries.
patchtable.exebinary will be created in a directory such as
For the documentation of the command-line tool, run:
Example of matching with accuracy roughly similar to PatchMatch:
./patchtable match vidpair0/a.png vidpair0/b.png out.pfm
Example of matching with increased coherence (mimics smooth NNFs of PatchMatch):
./patchtable match vidpair0/a.png vidpair0/b.png out.pfm -speed 3 -coherence_spatial 4
Simple C++ Code Example
Here is a simple code fragment of how PatchTable could be used in your own C++ program:
PatchTableParams p(argc, argv); /* Initialize with command-line arugments */ Array<float> a(load_color_image<float>(a_filename)); Array<float> b(load_color_image<float>(b_filename)); double T_build_table_start = wall_time(); PatchTable<> table(&p, b); printf("Build table time: %f seconds\n", wall_time() - T_build_table_start); Array<double> ann; double T_query = table.lookup(a, ann); printf("Query time: %f seconds\n", T_query); /* Explanation of ann (nearest neighbor field matching from a -> b): int b_patch_x = ann(a_patch_y, a_patch_x, NNF_X); int b_patch_y = ann(a_patch_y, a_patch_x, NNF_Y); double b_patch_dist = ann(a_patch_y, a_patch_x, NNF_DIST); */ save_color_image(ann, out_filename);

The Light field super-resolution code is in
patchtable_apps/HybridSuperres/Superes. The input file lists are
lowresolutionFile.txt. These contain the locations for the high and low resolution PNG files for each of the camera views.
When the program runs sucessfully, it will create a folder named result in
All the parameters are set in the code which are used to produce the same reference images in our paper.
