Smoothing techniques can be constructive to the motion vectors that can detect defective vectors and put forward alternatives. The substitute motion vectors can be used in place of those recommended by the block match algorithm. If frames are going to be interpreted by the receiver then motion vector amendment is expected to be precious. Design of an adaptive weighted median filter whose weights alters according to the confined characteristics is possible which can be used for smoothing intention.
