Alright, so here's the deal. I did this shot for a movie where I had a white paper that I wanted to use to mask out the entire right side of the frame. See below.



The thing is, my camera person wasn't positioned correctly, and the white sheet didn't cover the whole area it was supposed, and there's these gaps. This means (unless there's some other way) that I'll have to photoshop each frame like this:



But I don't want to export 60-odd frames, photoshop them, and import them all back. That would be a major hassle. So is there some sort of program I could use, that would allow me to photoshop WITHIN final cut pro, or just do something that would make this process any LESS tedious? You know, photoshop in "bulk" basically. I can't reshoot so I'm stuck like this.

Sorry. I just realized this was the wrong forum for this question. Please delete these messages.

Wrong forum or not...

Does this "mask" need to MOVE a lot?

Why not just create the mask and put it on a video layer above the other footage?

You would be able to keyframe some "moves" on it.
Much faster than doing a frame-by-frame.

That's my thoughts as well.

A Garbage Matte would do exactly what is needed and a subtle feather (2-5 px) would keep the edge soft enough to look more natural.

I'm still trying to figure out why he was doing this on-camera in the first place;-)
