A Variational Algorithm For Motion Compensated Inpainting
F. Lauze and M. Nielsen (IT University of Copenhapen, Denmark)

A novel variational algorithm is developed for video inpainting. Within a
Bayesian framework, using standard maximum a posteriori to variational formulation
rationale, we derive a minimum energy formulation for the estimation
of a reconstructed sequence as well as motion recovery. From the Euler-
Lagrange Equations, we propose a full multiresolution algorithm in order to
compute a good local minimizer for our energy and discuss its numerical implementation.
Experimental results for synthetic as well as real sequences
are presented.
