Augmented reality applications overlap virtual objects over a real scene considering the context. Today, more advanced applications also make use of diminished reality, which removes real objects from a scene. This paper describes a novel approach that combines augmented reality and diminished reality techniques to modify real objects in augmented reality applications. The proposed approach removes an object and replaces it with its purposely-modified replica. The solution uses dynamic texture techniques and inpaint to enhance the visual response of the performed modification. The results are promising considering both realism of the modified real object and performance of the application.
