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)
Motion picture films are susceptible to local degradations such as dust spots. Other deteriorations are global such as intensity and spatial jitter. It is obvious that motion needs to be compensated for before the detection/correction of such local and dynamic defects. Therefore, we propose a hierarchical motion estimation method ideally suited for high(More)
This paper presents a local approach for matching contour segments in an image sequence. This study has been primarily motivated by work concerned with the recovery of 3D structure using active vision. The method to recover the 3D structure of the scene requires to track in real-time contour segments in an image sequence. Here, we propose an original and(More)
