Mike FaresGlasses Reflection- Masking or Replacing
by on Nov 2, 2011 at 7:31:09 am

I have a shot in a short I am editing which is a straight on close up of very reflective sunglasses, you can easily see camera/cameraman reflections in the shot and I am interested in either taking out the reflections or replacing the glass with another piece of video.

I have tried using the rotobrush, but I need to brush every frame to make the reflections look good. I have also tried masking out the lenses but again, adjustments need to be made on each individual frame. The clips total at just over 10 seconds, which will take me a really long time, not to mention that the I am not really happy with the results on the tests I have done.

Does anyone have an idea on how I can either fix the reflection issue, or know an easier way to add another clip where the glasses are?

Here is the clip I am working with if this helps with any ideas.


Thanks!

Mike

You clip does not show up.
It seems that you can benefit from Mocha in this situation.
Here's a great tutorial:

Hey Mike... I reviewed your shot. Looks like a simple track and roto. If you have mocha the tracking should be a breeze. If you would like I got some free time to track and roto for you just send me the clip, I'd be happy to help.

Hey, that would be awesome if you would like to take a shot at it. I can send you a full res copy of the clips if you'd like. What is the best way for me to get this to you?

You can email me segments of the clip through email (compressed of course) or if you can post it somewhere for download that also would work (something like icloud maybe, not to sure how that works). I need full res copy. If i do the roto work are you able to handle filling in a new reflection? or do you need assistance with that as well?
