Fixing the background on a video
on Dec 30, 2008 at 4:26:46 am

Hi everyone--

Working on a video where there is a framed wall photo behind someone's head that shows the reflection of an umbrella light (oops!). In order to fix this, I was hoping to just paint over it in photoshop to eliminate the photo and just make it the color of the wall behind him.

How can I best keep the paint off of the person and only on the wall (and having the most realistic edges..keeping it away from the guy's hair)?

This is called rotoscoping... and it is NOT easy or fast....

Suggest you use AE for it...

Mask the guy out and place over a touched up frame made in PS.

This is quite a challenge and you will likely need someone to show you or complete quite a few tutorials as it takes several skills
