Abstract: During the warping operation with DIBR, the hole will be generated through the synthesis of 3D image. For mobile device, it has lower performance so that the hole inpainting cannot be completed in real-time. In order to overcome this shortcoming, we propose an image hole inpainting algorithm with improved FMM for mobile devices. The algorithm fills the hole after 3D image warping by DIBR. First, we mark the colour image and the corresponding holes. Then, we preserve the original image foreground edge information by the improved expanded core of traditional FMM. Finally, we implement the algorithm on mobile device. Experimental results show that the improved FMM proposed in this paper is better than the traditional FMM.
