AE motion tracking?
on Aug 5, 2010 at 8:45:46 pm


I have AE and i have a question. I have a video that im walkin on the street and there are cars riding etc and there is a stop sign right in front of me when i stand still. Is here a way to get that stop sign out of the video? I saw something about track motion but can i edit the tracked object to disappear?

Hope someone can help,

Sure you can do object removal.
Depending on your shot you can use AE's own tracker, Mocha or a 3d tracker like Boujpu or Syntheyes.
Then it's all about creating clean plates, rotoscoping and tweaking.
There's no quick plug-in for it though.
I'm sure that if you do a search on "object removal tutorials" you'll get plenty of info.

Here is one of many tutorials on the subject. The key is that you need something to fill in that blank space. Also, if the camera is moving in 3d space, you'll need to track it in 3d with a 3d tracker and replacing the object will become nearly impossible. If it's just panning, tilting, and zooming, you will have a much easier time of it.
