Object Removal is something that has to be done all the time. There are many different ways to go about this. The goal we want to achieve with these tutorials is to show you many different ways that you can do it. We want you to have a few different options in your arsenal because, depending on the shot you’re working with, different techniques work better than others. I know that I, personally, use this technique almost every day. There are a lot of different ways that this can be implemented to finish off the shot that you’re working on.
Check out the Object Removal in Nuke Part One tutorial below.
Doing object removal this way has its pros and cons. By just offsetting the footage, you’re locked to the plate. You don’t have to worry about depth of field, rack focus, or even the grain because it’s all coming straight from the plate. The problem is that if there isn’t a section of the footage that you can offset and use, it makes this way of doing it very difficult or almost impossible. Stay tuned for part two where we’ll show you how you could still remove the object if you’re unable to use this technique.
As always, comments and critiques are always welcome.
