Aged motion pictures may contain different types of defects, such as spikes and scratch lines. Several detection mechanisms were proposed to find scratches. However, it is relatively hard to precisely restore aged films if the continuation of image property is not considered in the temporal domain. This paper proposes a technique on restoring aged films based on simultaneously considering the outmost patches/pixels which are going to be inpainted. The inpainting order plays an important factor for human visualization. By eliminating the inpainting order problem, the results of restored films have good quality as compared to earlier approach. Application of our technique can be used in the restoration of aged films.
