Abstract

Image inpainting or image completion removes objects from a photo and automatically produces a visually pleasant result. However, to remove objects from a video, the resulting video may have ghost shadows even each individual frame is inpainted properly. We use motion estimation algorithm to separate objects and backgrounds into several layers. Objects in separated layers are inpainted from back to front layers, with a consideration of the temporal continuity of motion segments among different frames. The resulting video is visually more pleasant with most ghost shadows removed. Interested readers are welcome to look at our demonstration website at http://www.mine.tku.edu.tw/demo.
