Kudos to the team from Machine Perception at Google Research that just launched the Motion Still App to generate novel photos on an iOS device. This work is in part aimed at combining efforts like Video Textures and Video Stabilization and a lot more.
Today we are releasing Motion Stills, an iOS app from Google Research that acts as a virtual camera operator for your Apple Live Photos. We use our video stabilization technology to freeze the background into a still photo or create sweeping cinematic pans. The resulting looping GIFs and movies come alive, and can easily be shared via messaging or on social media.
