Paper Abstract

In this paper, we are presenting an object-level video editing tool that provides automatic object removal and video summarizing capabilities based on a user selected object. The tool has three main modules; object selection, object detection and background completion. In the object selection module, user selects the required object to be removed or used as reference for video summarization. The object contour is calculated using Livewire algorithm. The object detection module uses a correlation technique to detect the object in all frames. In the background completion module, the background is filled using a novel and efficient algorithm that combines the advantages of texture synthesis algorithms and inpainting techniques. A detailed description of the tool is presented in this paper along with a variety of experimental results.
