A procedure of interactive video object segmentation is cutting out a target object in a video by repeatedly providing user-annotations (points, lines, etc.) to an algorithm. In this paper, the procedure is achieved by generating the inter-image affinity matrix between the target frame and the annotated frame, and the other matrix between the previous frame and the target frame. By utilizing the two inter-image affinity matrices, we transport encoded features of the annotated frame and the previous frame for the target object. Through the experimental result, we show that exploiting the inter-image affinity matrices are effective for conducting the interactive video object segmentation.
