Texture aware video inpainting of complex scenes

Andrés Almansa

CNRS & Telecom ParisTech, France   -

We present an automatic video inpainting algorithm which relies on the multi-scale optimisation of a patch-based functional enforcing self-similarity. Unlike 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 videos. The resulting approach is able to successfully and automatically inpaint complex situations, including high resolution sequences with dynamic textures and multiple moving objects.

Joint work with Alasdair Newson (Duke University), Matthieu Fradet (Technicolor), Yann Gousseau (Telecom ParisTech) and Patrick Perez (Technicolor).
