This paper presents an effective object segmentation method for object-oriented coding. The process is composed of facial region detection using skin color and changed region detection using motion information. The image is then segmented between moving objects and background using motion estimation. The facial regions are detected using skin color, the data for which is obtained from the u, v image. This data is then used as a threshold to segment the facial region. The image is also segmented into changed regions using motion information. After combining these results, the final image is segmented between moving objects and background. This method is more efficient due to two factors, color and motion. Experimental results show that the proposed method can significantly improve the image quality.
