I shot an interview and did not notice a coat hanger in the background (half out of a shadow). I need to remove that hanger. I have been playing around in motion and final cut to try to remove the offending hanger with not a whole lot of luck.
Is there a plug in that will help me 'disappear' a steady background image?
(and I now always check for hangers)
Yes, it is called photoshop. You can use it to paint out every frame of a shot, or you can paint just one frame,using the clone or healing brush for example, and carefully mask the overlay into the cleaned-up background.
