This article deals with new restoration algorithms of strongly degraded videos. Degradations appears either as missing data in every image or as a large magnitude impulse noise. The proposed algorithm is based upon a partial differential equation formalism coming from recent works on image inpainting and video sequence restoration. It use a 3D representation of the video sequences and can process moving background sequence. Simultaneous inpainting and motion estimation are carried out. High quality results are presented in the context of the restoration of degraded films.
