ABSTRACT

In this paper, we propose a method to find the DoF(Depth of field) that is blurred in an image by focusing and out-focusing the camera through a efficient convolutional neural network. Our approach uses the RGB channel-based cross-correlation filter to efficiently classify the DoF region from the image and build data for learning in the convolutional neural network. A data pair of the training data is established between the image and the DoF weighted map. Data used for learning uses DoF weight maps extracted by cross-correlation filters, and uses the result of applying the smoothing process to increase the convergence rate in the network learning stage. The DoF weighted image obtained as the test result stably finds the DoF region in the input image. As a result, the proposed method can be used in various places such as NPR(Non-photorealistic rendering) rendering and object detection by using the DoF area as the user's ROI(Region of interest).
