Though block-based motion estimation techniques are primarily designed for video coding applications, they are increasingly being used in other video analysis applications due to their simplicity and ease of implementation. The major drawback associated with these techniques is that noises, in the form of false motion vectors, cannot be avoided while capturing block motion vectors. Similar noises may further be introduced when the technique of global motion compensation is applied to obtain true object motion from video sequences where both the camera and object motions are present. This paper presents a new technique for capturing large number of true object motion vectors by eliminating the false motion vector fields, for use in the application of object motion based video indexing and retrieval applications. Experimental results prove that our proposed technique significantly increases the percentage of retained true object motion vectors while eliminating all false motion vectors for variety of standard and non-standard video sequences.
