Motion compensation is widely used for exploiting temporal redundancies in the coding of image sequences. Accurate estimation of motion information in image sequences is important in motion-compensated coding. Different approaches have been used to estimate motion to obtain the motion-compensated frame difference signal.

This work uses the correlation-feedback approach to estimate the velocity or the optic flow of the moving image pixel. After the motion of the pixel is estimated. the motion-compensated frame difference signal is found by subtracting the current. frame from the predicted frame.

This correlation-feedback approach estimates the true motion vector of moving image accurately. Consequently, the reduced error in determining the optic flow of the moving image leads to a better motion-compensated frame difference signal. This work evaluates the performance of the correlation-feedback method by comparing it with the gradient-based approach and block method.
