I'm working on a project with a ton of mixed media sources, and some clips were shot on a Canon Rebel that unfortunately had sharpening turned up all the way in the shooting profile.

Anyone ever come up with a clever way to at least partially fix this?

find edges, shift alpha as luminescence, levels-alpha white/black. set as alpha matte for fast blur .2. should smooth the black edges.

Works like a charm! Crappy footage now slightly less crappy. I also blurred the matte layer a bit which seemed to work better for my situation.

Is there anybody here that could expand on this? I am having the same problem but the solution that Chris gave doesn't quite go into enough detail for a new guy like me!

Thanks

Thanks for sending that through Chris. Sorry, I'm pretty new to After Effects, is there a simple way to explain how I use one of my video files with your template to try it out.

Thanks

Right click replace image sequence with footage, then controls layer has sliders. The comp is hd so you may need to resize as nessessary
