That's nice ofcourse, but how about taking this to 3D? The problem would
be equivalent to finding surfaces in a voxel volume, for which there are
already algorithms available. The textures become two-axis-aligned
surfaces in the volume. And if we use surfaces we will also have the
motion data encoded straight away, making matching of triangles a lot
easier, which should speed up the decoder a lot. We could also chop the
volume if a totally new image appears (ie an I-frame (I think? one that
totally replaces the previous one, like when the video switches from one
camera to another one)). On MTV-style videos with lots of camera
switching this would do worse though. Perhaps only cut if the resulting
slices are thick enough.
