I studied this in college. The 8 point algorithm as I recall https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eight-point_algorithm

A sample project I did at UCLA https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2cbJSismcJbVk02MXd1b2pnU3c...

The impainting can be global and locally, but it has to be temporally stable to avoid shakiness associated with impainting multiple frames.

Photoshop unveiled a similar temporally stable algorithm which does just that (provided that you select a marquee selection around the object.) I can't find the link though. Perhaps those two algorithms can be combined to first locate the object then remove it.

Cool idea. But also, apparently this is a website for submitting and rating ideas themselves?

yeah indeed, I just found myself having way more ideas I'll ever be able to build.. so why not share them :) Im planning to add an idea every day.. will keep me busy for a while

I love lists of ideas! Nice project. This [0] comes to mind


cheers, I just had a look and I guess he had the same intention as me.. :)
