Being a novice to AFx I am keen to learn more about rotoscoping.
My project involves removing a moving image in the background of a scene. The person moves through the background of the shot and to blur him out still leaves a significant blurry image passing through the scene.
How do I rotoscope this out? From the tutorials I have seen on line it seems possible.
The footage has enough frames to grab and "block out" the corner where he walks through. The camera was still throughout the shot.
Any help would be great.

If the area that the person is passing through is static/unchanging for the entire shot, you can duplicate the layer, draw a rough mask around the area that the person walks through, an then shift the underlying copy of the layer in time so that you're picking up that part of the footage from a different time, when the person wasn't there.
