Intelligent video pre-processing and authoring techniques that facilitate people to create MTV-style music video clips are investigated in this research. First, we present an automatic approach to detect and remove bad shots often occurring in home video, such as video with poor lighting or motion blur. Then, we consider the generation of MTV-style video clips by performing video and music tempo analysis and seeking an effective way in matching these two tempos. Experiment results are given to demonstrate the feasibility and efficiency of the proposed techniques for home video editing.
