Image inpainting is to remove unnecessary objects or reconstruct damaged parts of an image automatically. In order to reduce the capacity of the file, the video film is usually stored after the quad or the octal processing. It is this processing that causes an image of low quality and makes the moving object become indistinct. In this paper, we proposed a new image inpainting method for rigid moving object in the temporal domain, in which the pixels are patched by the neighboring frames. The more neighboring frames are patched, the better a PSNR of the moving object image is obtained. The experiment results have shown that our method has good performance and obtained a better quality of the rigid moving object.
