Video inpainting of complex scenes.
co-authors: Alasdair Newson, Andrés Almansa, Mathieu Fradet, Yann Gousseau
We present a patch-based approach to inpaint videos, relying on a global, multi-scale optimization heuristic. Contrarily to previous approaches, the best patch candidates are selected using persistent multi-scale texture attributes. We show that this rationale prevents the usual wash-out of textured and cluttered parts of video. The resulting approach is able to successfully and automatically inpaint complex situations, including high resolution sequences with dynamic textures and multiple moving objects.
