Abstract

A novel spatio-temporal method is proposed for film dirt
detection and recovery. Firstly, a more reliable confidence
measurement of dirt is extracted for color films.
False alarms caused by motion are filtered using consistency
checks among several measurements. Then, candidate
dirt is detected by filtering and thresholding this
confidence measurement. Finally, bi-directional local
motion compensation and ML3Dex filtering are taken for
the recovery of dirt pixels. Experiments on real data
demonstrate the efficiency and effectiveness of our
method in terms of both detection and recovery of dirt.
