Problem with CC Simple Wire Removal
on Mar 1, 2013 at 3:26:47 pm

Hi - I have a dead pixel in some DSLR footage and found a tutorial on fixing it that seems very straightforward. However, I am having trouble getting started - either I'm missing something obvious or there's a bug.

1. I imported my final edited master into AE (ProRes 422). Put it into a comp.
2. Split the layer so that I am not processing areas that don't need the fix.

3. Now, when I apply CC Simple Wire Removal to a layer, the image inverts vertically, has a blue cast and the screen breaks up into blocks. It looks like a bug to me, and I can't proceed.

Anyone else seeing this in AE CS6 (11.0.2.11)?? Any thoughts about a workaround?

Mike

Very weird. I am getting the same thing here. I tried everything I could think of to correct it but unfortunately, I could not find a solution. If you have just a dead pixel you could mask off a small area around the pixel and key out the pixel and place a copy of the footage behind and bump it over a pixel to fill the whole. Just a thought. I might work depending on your footage.

Thank you. That reassures me that I don't need to reinstall AE or something like that.

So I'm doing that method now - do you happen to know if I can copy both the mask and the new Position coordinates so that I can paste them to other layers in my comp in one step instead of two?

Thanks, Mike

There's a bug in the current version of the CC Simple Wire Removal effect. The Cycore folks (the people who make that plug-in) are working on it. See this thread:

Todd, thank you! I did a search before I posted but I must not have set the date range back far enough.

I will email cycore now and see if I can get a better version of the plug-in.

As an aside, I thought this was the kind of thing the Creative Cloud membership was supposed to address. Hey Adobe, how about a point release of AE?

How would Adobe's Creative Cloud membership have anything to do with waiting on a bug fix from Cycore? It baffles the mind...

Well, the plugin is built into AE, not a separate purchase. Part of the "sell" on the Creative Cloud was not having to wait for new releases and improvements, of which I considered this bug fix to be. Sorry you found it baffling.

While the plugin is indeed built in, you'll find that Cycore Effects is indeed not built in to Adobe:

...so they have to wait on bug fixes. Cycore has a relationship with Adobe dating back to 1995. They are not owned by Adobe. That said, it's a pretty high-profile relationship, so there may be a fix sooner than you think.

I should have mentioned here, as I did in the Adobe thread Todd referred to, that Cycore's support was great and emailed me a prior version of the plugin that works perfectly. Others with the same issue should do the same for the time being. Thanks again Todd.

I'm glad to hear that they responded - they've been tightly tied to Adobe's plugin offerings for a long time.
