Im doing a project with an actor performing in front of a white backdrop.
Because of little space and lense-choice we had to frame in some of the actual studiowalls on both sides of the white background.

What is the best way to "extend" the white studio background?
The actor does not have hands outside the background so no need for roto.

I know I could shoot some clean background, put it on each side and feather the mask, but the feather will touch the actors hands...

Please help.

All the best, Stig

Without being able to see an image from your shoot, it's going to be hard to help.
Is there a reason you can't just add white?

I've got the exact same situation.
Wondering if you've found any solutions.

Also, I've got footage I had to change from 1920x1080 to 1440 to 1080 so I have black bars above and below my image.

Is there a way to stretch the edges of my frame to cover these bars?
I tried making the background color similar to the background I'm filming on but there is a slight vignette and it looks kind of messy.
