the DLC documentation is very clear that you should always only label visible bodyparts in your frames and skip the occluded bodyparts. However, I was wondering what one should do, if the whole animal is blurry. Specifically, I encountered two scenarios here:
- You can clearly see where the animal is, but the animal is just a dark blob. In this case, I opted only to label the dark blob with the “bodycenter” label and skipped all other labels.
- You can see the shape of the animal, but the exact bodyparts are not visible. This happens when the animal is moving fast and is recorded with low fps. In this case, I opted to label all the bodyparts based on the outline of the animal; for example, I labeled the snout of the animal on the front of the blur and positioned ears behind it at an approximate distance, where they are usually located.
Are these good practices, or is there a better way to do it?
Many thanks for your great support!
P.S.: maybe an idea for the DLC cookbook - the labeling chapter could include these different scenarios and how to act upon encountering them
