Multi-Scale Self-Calibrated Network for Image Light Source Transfer
Image light source transfer (LLST), as the most challenging task in the domain of image relighting, has attracted extensive attention in recent years. In the latest research, LLST is decomposed three sub-tasks: scene reconversion, shadow estimation, and image re-rendering, which provides a new paradigm for image relighting. However, many problems for scene reconversion and shadow estimation tasks, including uncalibrated feature information and poor semantic information, are still unresolved, thereby resulting in insufficient feature representation. In this paper, we propose novel down-sampling feature self-calibrated block (DFSB) and up-sampling feature self-calibrated block (UFSB) as the basic blocks of feature encoder and decoder to calibrate feature representation iteratively because the LLST is similar to the recalibration of image light source. In addition, we fuse the multi-scale features of the decoder in scene reconversion task to further explore and exploit more semantic information, thereby providing more accurate primary scene structure for image re-rendering. Experimental results in the VIDIT dataset show that the proposed approach significantly improves the performance for LLST.
