The set and makeup play important roles in achieving a realistic feel in television dramas. In historical drama sets in the days of the samurai, the degree to which wigs appear natural can particularly affect the overall quality of a program. This is an issue of special concern in the production of high-definition TV programs. The detailed and true to life reproduction that are the special features of HDTV actually make a natural look for wigs more difficult to achieve. This problem is currently addressed by meticulous work in the wigs that requires much effort and expense, and in some cases, restricts the freedom of the actor's performance. In response to this situation, the authors have been investigating a technique for correcting places in the video image that look unnatural by processing the image after the source video has been recorded. This paper is a report on the favorable results that have been obtained in computer simulations of the technique.
