Linear multidimensional filter theory provides an elegant way to analyse movement within image sequences, i.e. to separate objects moving in different directions or at different speeds. Due to its time-invariant transfer function a single filter is restricted to specific motions, for which reason a consecutively parameterized filter bank is needed to differentiate a broader set of movement. In this paper, an introduction to velocity filtering is given and unwanted side-effects are discussed, i.e. spatio-temporal ringing and perspective distortion. As a practical example a traffic scene is analysed by means of inverse perspective mapping followed by a velocity filter bank.
