                              Video de-Abstraction
                    How to save money on your wedding video

There exists an increasing body of work dealing with video still abstraction, the extraction of
representative still images from a video sequence. This work focuses in the other direction:
given a video abstract and raw unedited video data, we produce an edited video.

We focus on the application of generating wedding videos.  We use the existing wedding photo
album as an abstract, and produce an edited wedding video from it. The photo album serves us
in determining importance of raw shots, as well as style and order.
