Teaser video:

This teaser video shows feature matching results with our integrated LIFT pipeline and SIFT [1], for selected sequences of all three datasets, Strecha, DTU, and Webcam. Our results are significantly better overall compared to SIFT. Note that, in our experiments, SIFT still gives results that are on par with the state-of-the-art, in terms of the pipeline performance. Please see the paper for details.
