ComfyUI Extension: ComfyUI Optical Flow

This package contains three nodes to help you compute optical flow between pairs of images, usually adjacent frames in a video, visualize the flow, and apply the flow to another image of the same dimensions. Most of the code is from Deforum, so this is released under the same license (MIT).

About

This package contains three nodes to help you compute optical flow between pairs of images, usually adjacent frames in a video, visualize the flow, and apply the flow to another image of the same dimensions.

Most of the code is from Deforum, so this is released under the same license (MIT).

Nodes

Compute optical flow

This node takes two images, prev and current, and computes the optical flow between them using either the DIS (Dense Inverse Search) medium or fine method, or Farneback. The images must have the same dimensions.

Apply optical flow

This node takes an image and applies an optical flow to it, so that the motion matches the original image. This can be used for example to improve consistency between video frames in a vid2vid workflow, by applying the motion between the previous input frame and the current one to the previous output frame before using it as input to a sampler.

Visualize optical flow

This node takes an image and a flow and produces an image visualizing the flow on top of the image. The image must be the same size as the images used to compute the flow in the first place. It's up to you whether you use the "prev", "current", or an image you intend to apply the flow to.
