Thread: removing people from video

  1. Question removing people from video

    Hey all

    I just wanted to ask which is the best way to remove people from videos. Of course you can do it frame-by-frame. But heres the example clip Its from movie "Matrix" and I want to remove Neo (that guy who dodges bullets)from that chapter and then put myself to that chapter. Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance

    I suspect the 'best' way may be beyond your current software and your technical experience. Sadly, there are no simple plugins to replace characters in movies.

    You suggest that 'frame-by-frame' is an option. What were you considering doing to each frame?

    To TimAnders. I thought that I could pick up some surfaces from video(around the guy) and put them over the guy,so I make the guy invisible. But it is difficult and need lots of work. To paulears, I thought that I could do it like this: So I just need the video without the guy. The rest of will be quite easy.

    Yeah, doing "frame-by-frame" or something like that needs lots of work.

    Anyway,thanks for your time!=)

    Perhaps you could post your video so the OP can see what can be achieved? Personally - I would have just gone back and re-shot the scene properly. Does demonstrate the need for planning doesn't it.
