A Database and Evaluation Methodology for Optical Flow,
published open access in International Journal of Computer Vision, 92(1):1-31, March 2011.
Also available as Microsoft Research Technical Report MSR-TR-2009-179.

Our work was first presented at ICCV 2007, where we evaluated a small set of algorithms on a preliminary dataset. Since then, we have created a new collection of optical flow datasets with ground truth. They are divided into an evaluation (test) set, used for the official evaluation, and an "other" (training) set. We only give out the ground truth for the latter.

If you report performance results on our benchmark, we request that you cite the above IJCV paper. If you want to cite this website, please use the URL "".
