Thread: Video background removal (I have the original background image)

    Question Video background removal (I have the original background image)

    Hello!

    First of all, sorrry for my poor english, I am from Hungary.

    I want to remove (replace) the background of a short video. The camera is fixed and the background is a simple image (unfortunatelly, not a simple color). I found the nature image on the internet in same resolution as the video. Is there a solution which makes my job so easy as the case of green background? Eg., separation by pixel comparison (the perfect solution can also handle the opacity of elements).

    Many thanks for help!

    If I understand you correctly, you have an image both with and without the subject. If so the technique you need to research is called "difference masking".

    Depending on what it is, you probably want to be looking at rotoscoping in After Effects. You could also try the roto brush to get you close then refine it as you go along.

    Unfortunately that's not something that's easy to explain in just a few words so look up roto scoping and roto brush on youtube and look for tutorials.
