Hi All,

I've been searching high and low for a tutorial on how to motion track a clone stamp in After Effects, but so far I haven't had the best results. I found the tutorial by Angie Taylor, but since I didn't have the project files, I got lost and couldn't achieve the same results that she did.

Here's what I'm trying to do:

I have an interview clip that I imported into AE, and I want to remove a blotch on the back wall. I just want to clone a small patch of the clean wall, paste it over the damage spot, and track the stamp so that it is anchored over the spot when the camera shifts. I'm pretty new at AE, so could someone give me a quick breakdown of the steps necessary to do that?

Thanks so much!

You can export a frame, create a patch in PSD and import that in AE back. (feather the edges). Track using Mocha - plenty of tutorials out there. Comp the patch over the background - apply track data and match grain.

Here's a video that I made that shows using motion tracking and then attaching the motion tracking data to a Clone Stamp stroke:
