A motion texture is the instantaneous scalar map of apparent motion values extracted from a dynamic or temporal texture. It is mostly displayed by natural scene elements (fire, smoke, water) but also involves more general textured motion patterns (eg. a crowd of people, a flock). In this work we are interested in the modeling and tracking of motion textures. Experimentally we observe that such motion maps exhibit values of a mixed type: a discrete component at zero and a continuous component of non-null motion values. Thus, we propose a statistical characterization of motion textures based on a mixed-state causal modeling. Next, the problem of tracking is considered. A set of mixed-state model parameters is learned as a descriptive feature of the motion texture to track and displacement estimation is solved using the conditional Kullback-Leibler divergence for statistical window matching. Results and comparisons are presented on real sequences.
