I have a shot of a wall with grafitti on. People run past the wall and the camera moves. I took the clone tool and using a clean part of the wall cleaned up the entire wall. I hit freeze frame to give me a freeze frame of the entire wall cleaned up. What I had hoped to then do is to cut out part of the clean wall and motion track it back onto the footage.
Whenever I apply a mask to the shot the cloning element disappears. How do I cut out a piece of the wall with the cloning in tact, to ultimately be able to be used to motion track.
I don't know if this question makes sense, but have been stuck on it for about 5 days with no success. Any help would be truly helpful.
