Removing objects from videos with a few strokes

Abstract : We present a system for the removal of objects from videos. As an input, the system only needs a user to draw a few strokes in at least one frame, roughly delimiting the objects to be removed. ese rough masks are then automatically re ned and propagated through the video. e corresponding regions are resynthesized using video inpainting techniques. Our system is able to deal with multiple, possibly crossing objects, with complex motions and with dynamic textures. is results in a computational tool that can alleviate tedious manual operations for editing high-quality videos.
