This correspondence investigates object-based analysis-synthesis coding (OBASC) for the encoding of moving images at very low data rates. According to the source model, each moving object of an image is described and encoded by three parameter sets defining its motion, shape, and surface color. The parameter sets of each object are obtained by model-based image analysis. They are coded by an object-dependent parameter coding. Using the coded parameter sets, an image can be synthesized by model-based image synthesis. Here, OBASC based on the source model of “moving flexible 3-D objects with 3-D motion” (F3D) is introduced. The efficiency of this source model F3D is compared to the efficiency of OBASC based on the source model of “moving rigid 3-D objects with 3-D motion” (R3D). Compared to R3D, F3D requires the additional transmission of flexible-shape parameters. Therefore, the source model F3D is only applied in those areas of the image which cannot be described by the source model R3D. The new source model F3D reduces the bit rate from 64 to 56 kb/s, providing the same picture quality measured by the SNR of the encoded color parameters
