I cannot find out how to select the pixels to target with the pixel fixer effect in Premiere Pro. The problem I am having is described in this post: http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/15/861029#864096 which I have tried to resurrect without luck - I can change all the parameters of the effect except selecting which pixel to target ... any help for a newb please!? Thanks
The Pixel Fixer works best when you use the on-screen crosshair, but this crosshair does not display automatically in Premiere Pro. If you have After Effects, you will notice that this is not an issue in that interface.
To get this crosshair to appear in Premiere Pro, what you will need to do is highlight the name of the filter itself (in this case BCC Pixel Fixer) in the effect controls, and then the crosshair should appear. Note also that it might appear outside of the video (thus off-screen), so perhaps, when you first do this, shrink the video display to 50% or 25%, and re-scale to pinpoint the target.
