An automatic and efficient algorithm for removal of intensity flicker is proposed. The novel repair process is founded on the block-based estimation and restoration algorithm with regard to luminance variation. It is easily realized and controlled to remove most intensity flicker and preserve the wanted effects, like fade in and fade out.
