We shot a pleasant interview of a bicyclist in an establishing shot at some distance and didn't notice that we were picking up the reflector in his glasses on the left side. It must have been the sunlight combined with looking at the monitor when his head was at a different angle.
So would any of you know how I can take his right eye and flip it to make up for the reflection? I do not own AE, but would motion possibly do this? Since the guy is at such a distance and the shot is establishing mostly, I think it will work if I can only mask out and flip all but his glasses and do an overlay of some kind.
The concept itself is fairly simple, just duplicate the layer, mask out the eye, flop filter it and then motion track/ manually rotorscope the movement matched to the cyclists head. (even FCP can do this kinda stuff to an extent), however this could easily look terrible and may be pretty time consuming, especially if he rotates or turns his head at all.....

Thanks! I have done similar things before in FCP, and followed frame by frame the movements to the object I tried intersecting with. I guess the thing I was uncertain about is if I could create a mask map, an odd shape, of an area that is not just cropped or square in Motion? And yes I know how goofy it can look when not done well. Luckily, his face was relatively still.
