Postproduction processing of film and video is a source of a wide variety of image processing and analysis problems for motion images. I shall describe the formulation of problems in the areas of digital repair of damage to film, conversion between different digital video formats, and compression. Approaches to these problems used in a current workstation-based system will be described and illustrated with examples. Other contributors to the design of this system are D. Geman, S. Geman, K. Manbeck and C. Yang.
