masking with surroundings
on Dec 27, 2016 at 2:08:08 am

hi. I have several hour long videos captured from video game scenes that i am trying to put together in a timelapse.
i have this annoying circle in the middle used in the HUD of the game. What is the best way that i can hide this without distorting the quality?
(its in the center. )
keep in mind that the lighting and movement changes gradually so im not sure if one-frame edits will do.
heres an example.

Sorry, the link doesn't work. So in its absence, here are a couple-three questions:

Does the circle change position or size?
Does it block any critical areas of the surrounding image?
You'll have to replace it SOMETHING, or just leave a hole. What's the replacement?

The link isn't clickable, but a quick copy into the url bar does the trick.

Try the clone brush tool in AE.

Or mask it off, and put a second copy of the footage underneath, moving the lower layer over by a few pixels.
