Remove a wart from a finger?
on Mar 12, 2019 at 2:38:25 pm

I am trying to remove a wart from someones finger while they are using a phone. I can't really work out the best way to do it, but certain there's a way!

If anyone can help that would be super ☺

How on Earth did that hand model get selected?
Can it just be re-shot, which eliminates the problem? It just needs to be close.

Well, let's say you enjoy spending many hours repairing a shot.....

How long does the shot last? You may be able to get away with masking, tracking and replacing missing sections of background.

Instead of trying to lop off the wart you would need to make a clean fingertip and track that in place. If the finger is moving around in three dimensions then it starts to get impossible.

Hi Guys!

Thanks for your advice and yes I know. ☺ It cannot be re-shoot.

The actual shot was a few seconds. The hand swipes on the App - press a button and swipes off. Nothing weird about camera angles. I thought I may have to just mask, duplicate, blur, track etc etc ..

I'll aside a day for that lol

Cheers
Steven

[Steven Probets] "Thanks for your advice and yes I know. ☺ It cannot be re-shoot."

Very well. Then you can tell the person in charge the following:
"I can spend what is very likely to be two or three days repairing the shot. Or you can set up a camera, get a female with a good-looking hand, get a phone, have the good-looking hand do the same thing as before -- ON A TIGHT SHOT ONLY -- and be done with it in less than a half-day. I'll let you decide which makes the most sense."

If you haven't guessed, I think the "we can't re-shoot" excuse is a lame, flimsy bunch of baloney.

If you can't re-shoot it, the first technique I would try is to use Photoshop's Content Aware Fill to make a wartless finger. Then grab a patch from that repaired finger and track it to the hand using Mocha AE.

But seriously try to reshoot it first as Dave says.

If they truly refuse to reshoot theres a ton of stock footage you could replace that with.
