The application of image processing techniques to individual frames of video often results in temporal inconsistency. Conventional approaches used for preserving the temporal consistency in videos have shortcomings as they are used for only particular jobs. Our work presents a multipurpose video temporal consistency preservation method that utilizes an adaptive simple linear iterative clustering (SLIC) algorithm. First, we locate the inter-frame correspondent pixels through the SIFT Flow and use them to find the respective regions. Then, we apply a multiframe matching statistical method to get the spatially or temporally correspondent frames. Besides, we devise a least-squares energy-based flickering-removing objective function by taking into account the inter-frame temporal consistency and inter-region spatial consistency jointly. The obtained results demonstrate the potential of the proposed method.
