Dust remover in video

Hey everyone -- I know there are posts on how to remove dust from video using a pixel blaster plugin in Final Cut Pro X, but I haven't been able to find anything for older versions, like 7. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

you mean like a single dead pixel, or blob,
or constant dust all over ike ah old film print?

for a single 1frame blobs i've used Too Much Too Soon's"Hair" (free, i think)
others out there include:

Eureka - Pixel Fixer
1z1Tools - pixelRebirth
CHV - Repair-collection

Constant dust. CHV has a dirt remover plugin, I'm seeing, that might be worth a shot. I can get rid of these things easily on stills in Photoshop, but I've yet to learn how to do it in Final Cut Pro with video.

Yes, i've used that CHV plug in, it does an OK job.

there's another I know from a restoration job i did a few years ago: Furnace-core from The Foundry.
VERY expensive, and also discontinued, i now see.

I think resolve might offer some automated dust-busting, but I'm not sure.
i know it does a very slick job doing it manually: click a piece of dust, and it;s gone,
but you don't want to do that for the whole film!

our externe cue on the restoration job was that we did a pass with furnace core,
which cleaned up a lot,
then had to zap a fair bit more manualy.
that's pretty much the norm.

Nick,

I can't figure out on how to use "Too Much Too Soon" hair removal on my video. Would you be able to explain that to me? I am not good with computers and having a very hard time with this. Your help will be much appreciate it.

Thanks so much.

Daniel

what sort of problems are you having?
it's pretty simple, so can only work in a simple way.
it can help cover up a small, straight hair that is not moving,
or a small spot.

there are two position markers, P1 and P2, you use them to define the start and end of the hair.
if it's a spot, the start and end are basically in the same place.

the filter then substitutes that area from the next or previous frame,
and there's a other control where you can create an off-set, so you wind up replacing the hair or spot with another part of the image.

it's limited for actual hairs, and pretty good for single frame spots.
for a single frame spot, you have to blade the problem frame, then apply the filter.


i hope that helps,
nick
