Our method takes the original unprocessed and per-frame processed videos as inputs to produce a temporally consistent video. Our approach is agnostic to specific image processing algorithms applied on the original video.

Requirements and dependencies

Our code is tested on Ubuntu 16.04 with cuda 9.0 and cudnn 7.0.


Download repository:

git clone

Compile FlowNet2 dependencies (correlation, resample, and channel norm layers):



Download our training and testing datasets:

cd data
./ [train | test | all]
cd ..

For example, download training data only:

./ train

Download both training and testing data:

./ all

You can also download the results of [Bonneel et al. 2015] and our approach:

./ results

Apply pre-trained models

Download pretrained models (including FlowNet2 and our model):

cd pretrained_models
cd ..

Test pre-trained model:

python -dataset DAVIS -task WCT/wave

The output frames are saved in data/test/ECCV18/WCT/wave/DAVIS.

Training and testing

Train a new model:

python -datasets_tasks W3_D1_C1_I1

We have specified all the default parameters in lists/train_tasks_W3_D1_C1_I1.txt specifies the dataset-task pairs for training.

Test a model:

python -method MODEL_NAME -epoch N -dataset DAVIS -task WCT/wave

Check the checkpoint folder for the MODEL_NAME. The output frames are saved in data/test/MODEL_NAME/epoch_N/WCT/wave/DAVIS.

You can also generate results for multiple tasks using the following script:

python -method output/MODEL_NAME/epoch_N

which will test all the tasks in lists/test_tasks.txt.


Temporal Warping Error

To compute the temporal warping error, we first need to generate optical flow and occlusion masks:

python -dataset DAVIS -phase test

The flow will be stored in data/test/fw_flow/DAVIS. The occlusion masks will be stored in data/test/fw_occlusion/DAVIS.

Then, run the evaluation script:

python -method output/MODEL_NAME/epoch_N -task WCT/wave


Download LPIPS repository and change LPIPS_dir in if necesary (default path is ../LPIPS).

Run the evaluation script:

python -method output/MODEL_NAME/epoch_N -task WCT/wave

Batch evaluation

You can evaluate multiple tasks using the following script:

python -method output/MODEL_NAME/epoch_N -metric LPIPS
python -method output/MODEL_NAME/epoch_N -metric WarpError

which will evaluate all the tasks in lists/test_tasks.txt.

Test on new videos

To test our model on new videos or applications, please follow the folder structure in ./data.

Given a video, we extract frames named as %05d.jpg and save frames in data/test/input/DATASET/VIDEO.

The per-frame processed video is stored in data/test/processed/TASK/DATASET/VIDEO, where TASK is the image processing algorithm applied on the original video.

Image Processing Algorithms

We use the following algorithms to obtain per-frame processed results:

Style transfer

Image Enhancement

Intrinsic Image Decomposition

Image-to-Image Translation
