Owing to the limitations of practical realizations, block-based motion is widely used as an alternative for pixel-based motion in video applications such as global motion estimation and frame rate up-conversion. We hereby present BlockNet, a compact but effective deep neural architecture for block-based motion estimation. First, BlockNet extracts rich features for a pair of input images. Then, it estimates coarse-to-fine block motion using a pyramidal structure. In each level, block-based motion is estimated using the proposed representative matching with a simple average operator. The experimental results show that BlockNet achieved a similar average end-point error with and without representative matching, whereas the proposed matching incurred 18% lower computational cost than full matching.
