View clone stamp only
on Jan 16, 2016 at 5:32:49 am

Hi, I'm just an AE beginner so this is probably a simple task... I just can't work it out!

I'm painting something out of a shot using clone stamp. However I want to be able to just render out a still frame of the paint over alpha, so I can comp it back into Premiere as a still over my edit (to save me having to re-render a whole video in AE). But I cant work out a way to turn the layer off and see only paint. Is that possible?

Thanks for your advice, appreciated!

The first thing to ask -- is this a locked-down shot? Absolutely NO camera movement? If you can't answer, "I'll swear on a stack of Bibles and give up my firstborn that this shot is 100% rock-solid", don't even try it. Take the render time hit in AE.

Besides, I don't think there's a way to make the layer transparent without making the clone stuff transparent, too.

Thanks, Yeh it is locked off :) It will work I know for sure. Just need to work out how to view only the cloned footage so I can make a render of that.

Copy your paint effect onto a solid and turn Paint on Transparent to On.
