AE cs6 blurs
by Scott Adams on Aug 17, 2014 at 4:22:56 pm
Hey anyone and everyone! I need some assistance on a project and I am hoping someone out there can assist. I am pulling a person out of a 2d image with a blank tv screen behind him. I have the hard part done with the extraction and footage on tv but my problem now lies in matching them back up. Its a simple task (if doing it in Nuke) but I don't have access to Nuke anymore and I am using AE cs6. My query is, is there a plugin or process that I could try to create an edge blur on the extracted piece that won'affect the rest of the image? Nuke has an edge blur node which makes this easy but I am trying to learn compositing in AE and I just can't get it to look good enough to add to my reel.

Duplicated footage then I created a garbage mask and used roto brush and then frame by frame manipulation of the roto. Still not as accurate as i need but its what I've got to work with. Now i need to soften up edges to match so i dont have razor sharp edges.
