This paper proposes a tree-based hierarchical image mosaicing system using camera and object parameters for efficient video database construction. Gray level histogram difference and average intensity difference are proposed for scene change detection of input video. Camera parameter measured by utilizing least sum of square difference and affine model, and difference image is used for similarity measure of two input images. Also, dynamic objects are searched through macro block setting and extracted by using region splitting and 4-split detection methods. Dynamic trajectory evaluation function is used for expression of dynamic objects, and blurring is performed for construction of soft and slow mosaic image.
