DeblurGAN-v2: Deblurring (Orders-of-Magnitude) Faster and Better

Code for this paper DeblurGAN-v2: Deblurring (Orders-of-Magnitude) Faster and Better

In ICCV 2019


We present a new end-to-end generative adversarial network (GAN) for single image motion deblurring, named DeblurGAN-v2, which considerably boosts state-of-the-art deblurring efficiency, quality, and flexibility. DeblurGAN-v2 is based on a relativistic conditional GAN with a double-scale discriminator. For the first time, we introduce the Feature Pyramid Network into deblurring, as a core building block in the generator of DeblurGAN-v2. It can flexibly work with a wide range of backbones, to navigate the balance between performance and efficiency. The plug-in of sophisticated backbones (e.g., Inception-ResNet-v2) can lead to solid state-of-the-art deblurring. Meanwhile, with light-weight backbones (e.g., MobileNet and its variants), DeblurGAN-v2 reaches 10-100 times faster than the nearest competitors, while maintaining close to state-of-the-art results, implying the option of real-time video deblurring. We demonstrate that DeblurGAN-v2 obtains very competitive performance on several popular benchmarks, in terms of deblurring quality (both objective and subjective), as well as efficiency. Besides, we show the architecture to be effective for general image restoration tasks too.

training script will load config under config/config.yaml

To test on a single image,

python IMAGE_NAME.jpg

By default, the name of the pretrained model used by Predictor is ‘best_fpn.h5’. One can change it in the code (‘weights_path’ argument). It assumes that the fpn_inception backbone is used. If you want to try it with different backbone pretrain, please specify it also under [‘model’][‘g_name’] in config/config.yaml.
