Image matting plays a key role in image and video editing and composition. Although existing deep learning approaches can produce acceptable image matting results, their performance suffers in real-world applications, where the input images are mostly high resolution. To address this, a group of researchers from UIUC, Adobe Research and the University of Oregon have proposed HDMatt, the first deep learning-based image matting approach for high-resolution image inputs.
