We propose a quality-aware computational optimization of inpainting based upon the intelligent application of a battery of inpainting methods. By leveraging the Decision-Action-Reward Network (DARN) formalism and a bottom-up model of human visual attention, methods are selected for optimal local use via an adjustable quality-time tradeoff and (empirical) training statistics aimed at minimizing observer foveal attention to inpainted regions. Results are shown for object removal in high-resolution consumer video, including a comparison of output quality and efficiency with homogeneous inpainting applications.
