A modular real-time diminished reality pipeline for indoor applications is presented. The pipeline includes a novel inpainting method which requires no prior information of the textures behind the object to be diminished. The inpainting method operates on rectified images and adapts to scene illumination. In typically challenging illumination situations, the method produces more realistic results in indoor scenes than previous approaches. Modularity enables using alternative implementations in different stages and adapting the pipeline for different applications. Finally, practical solutions to problems occurring in diminished reality applications, for example interior design, are discussed.
