  • Publication number: 20240112404
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are described herein for modifying the scale and/or position of objects in images. For instance, a system can obtain a two-dimensional (2D) input image from a camera and a three-dimensional (3D) representation of the 2D input image. The system can further determine a first portion of the 3D representation of the 2D input image corresponding to a target object in the 2D input image. The system can adjust a pose of the first portion of the 3D representation of the 2D input image corresponding to the target object. The system can further generate a 2D output image having a modified version of the target object based on the adjusted pose of the first portion of the 3D representation of the 2D input image corresponding to the target object to be output on a display.
