This paper proposes a generative method to extract 3D human pose using just a single image. Unlike many existing approaches we assume that accurate foreground background segmentation is not possible and do not use binary silhouettes. A stochastic method is used to search the pose space and the posterior distribution is maximized using Expectation Maximization (EM). It is assumed that some knowledge is known a priori about the position, scale and orientation of the person present and we specifically develop an approach to exploit this. The result is that we can learn a more constrained prior without having to sacrifice its generality to a specific action type. A single prior is learnt using all actions in the Human Eva dataset [9] and we provide quantitative results for images selected across all action categories and subjects, captured from differing viewpoints.
