We present a new function that operates on Fundamental matrices across a sequence of views. The operation, we call “threading”, connects two consecutive Fundamental matrices using the Trilinear tensor as the connecting thread. The threading operation guarantees that consecutive camera matrices are consistent with a unique 3D model, without ever recovering a 3D model. Applications include recovery of camera ego-motion from a sequence of views, image stabilization (plane stabilization) across a sequence, and multi-view image-based rendering.
