I am trying your library to estimate the motion between 2 images. But I want the fundamental matrix and I suppose that it is H in your code. But the rank of the fundamental matrix should be 2 but here it it doesn't work. Maybe I didn't udnerstand how you library works but let me now.

somebody know which method he had use in immosaic function specifically in this part
% do the mosaic
pt = zeros(3,4);
pt(:,1) = H*[1;1;1];
pt(:,2) = H*[N2;1;1];
pt(:,3) = H*[N2;M2;1];
pt(:,4) = H*[1;M2;1];
x2 = pt(1,:)./pt(3,:);
y2 = pt(2,:)./pt(3,:);

up = round(min(y2));
Yoffset = 0;
if up <= 0
Yoffset = -up+1;
up = 1;

left = round(min(x2));
Xoffset = 0;
if left<=0
Xoffset = -left+1;
left = 1;

[M3 N3 ~] = size(img21);
imgout(up:up+M3-1,left:left+N3-1,:) = img21;
% img1 is above img21
imgout(Yoffset+1:Yoffset+M1,Xoffset+1:Xoffset+N1,:) = img1;

is there anyother way of doing this warping part...

Maybe someone has matlab code to eliminate camera distortion? This code doesn't do that :(

it's really cool,man,just replace the function isrgb when you are using a new matlab version(R 8.0+)

Nice work!

Any idea how to get a fully cropped image? Without the black surroundings? Would be really helpful. Thank you

Hi Kyle,

replace "if isrgb(img)" with "if size(img,3)==3" in shift.m

May this file is just an apply of sift. the true sift alg may the siftwin32.exe with no source can learn.
