Removing hair off coat in footage
on Dec 12, 2014 at 3:37:56 pm

I am editing a video where the subject's coat has some pet hair on it. I have tried to using the Object Remover from SliceX to track the hairs but for the most part I am not successful. Is there a way to do this with SliceX?

Hello,
does it fail to track? Can you show an image illustrating the problem?
You can also animate the mask in Object Remover manually.
Blurring the hairs away by applying "Blur Shape Mask" may also work as the hairs are tiny.

I hadn't thought of using the Blur tool so I will try that. Here is a screen grab of the video:

As the coat has some texture, tracking might work, but you should restrict tracking to those areas which are in the same plane.
Another option would be using Shape Mask Layer with another plugin which specialized for removing small defects.

You are saying using SliceX's Shape Mask layer with another plugin? I didn't know you could do that but then again I am still not that well informed about how to use SliceX.

Yes, please take a look at our tutorial videos at http://vimeo.com/channels/coremeltslicex
There's an example for this at the bottom of the 1st page.

OK that seems like it might work but am I able to apply more then one shape mask to a copied video or do I need to copy the video each time I want to use the mask?

You can apply multiple instances of Shape Mask Layer to one clip for this purpose.
