Given an image sequence with corrupted pixels, usually big holes that span over several frames, we propose to complete the missing parts using an iterative optimization approach which minimizes an optical flow functional and propagates the color information simultaneously. Inside one iteration of the optical flow estimation, we use the solved motion field to propagate the color and then use the newly inpainted color back to the brightness constraint of the optical flow functional. We then

We also add a trajectory constraint by solving the forward and backward flow simultaneously using three frames. Finally, we minimize the functional by using alternating direction method of multipliers.
