automate action on movie file
on Dec 2, 2009 at 7:21:47 pm

I have a QT video file with an alpha channel and I did some fine cleaning of the video image in Photoshop using the Eraser tool.
I would like to find out necessary steps to automate erasing the same part of the frame on all frames of that Quick Time file. It is 15seconds @ 30fps. It would be very helpful, thanks.
I have done it on folder of images but not worked with video QT file.
Thank you,

Rotoscoping cannot be automated

You can try keying in After Effects... but not erasing frame by frame

You can also look at masking in AE

If it is the exact same spot in each frame, then I think you can create an action. Did you try? Use the select tool and then delete the selection. I tried something like this once while playing around and achieved something like this. Not sure how 'tricky' you can get (like using the same path as a selection, or something like that).
