This paper proposes a blocking artifacts detection algorithm in frequency domain for MC-FRUC (Motion Compensated Frame Rate Up-Conversion). Conventional MC-FRUC algorithms occur blocking artifacts near interpolated block boundaries since motion compensation is performed from block-based motion vector. For efficiently decreasing blocking artifacts, this paper analyses frequency characteristics of the interpolated frame and reduces blocking artifacts on block boundaries. In experimental results the proposed method shows better subjective quality than some conventional FRUC method and also increases the PSNR(Peak Signal to Noise Ratio) value on average 0.45 dB compared with BDMC(Bi-Directional Motion Compensation).
