Abstract – A method of calculating the motion estimation by using mutual information and adaptive thresholding. The video is decomposed using transformations. The adaptive thresholding techniques are applied to obtain the mutual information. The mutual information from each sub bands are compared and the matching metric is calculated. Using the matching metric the motion estimation is obtained. Here the simple method of calculation of matching metric is achieved. The above obtained result is accurate and the execution speed is high.

Keywords— Mutual information, matching metric, thresholding, directional pyramid, motion estimation, dense motion estimation
