Each file is a Microsoft Installer package (MSI), to enable the End-User License Agreement (EULA) to be embedded for legal reasons. Just save the files to a local directory and run them. The MSI package requires Windows OS for installation, and places the data files in a subdirectory in C:\Program Files.
These sequences were used for our video interpolation work described in "High-quality video view interpolation using a layered representation," C.L. Zitnick, S.B. Kang, M. Uyttendaele, S. Winder, and R. Szeliski, ACM SIGGRAPH and ACM Trans. on Graphics, Los Angeles, CA, Aug. 2004, pp. 600-608. If you use our data, please cite this paper as the source.
Each sequence is 100 frames long. The camera resolution is 1024x768 and the capture rate is 15fps. The depth data were computed using the stereo technique described in our Siggraph'04 paper and should not be regarded as ground truth. Each dataset was broken up into five parts due to its large size.
Each dataset has two text files: calibParams-breakdancers.txt or calibParams-ballet.txt and README.txt. They contain the camera parameters (intrinsic and extrinsic) and instructions on how to interpret the depth values.
After downloading the files, if you have problems, please refer to this document which describes our projection test.
Please email Larry Zitnick if you have any questions. Please note that this work was done about 10 years ago, so we may not be able to adequately address your technical questions. Also, do not ask about compatibility with VSRS software because we are not familiar with it.
