Line scratches are common degradations in motion picture films. This paper presents an efficient method for line scratches detection strengthened by a Kalman filter. A new interpolation technique, dealing with both low and high frequencies (i.e. film grain) around the line artifacts, is investigated to achieve a nearby invisible reconstruction of damaged(More)
A suitable detection/reconstruction approach is proposed for removing line scratches from degraded motion picture films. The detection procedure consists of two steps. First, a simple 1D-extrema detector provides line scratch candidates. Line artifacts persist across several frames. Therefore, to reject false detections, the detected scratches are tracked(More)
