  • Motion tracking

    Can anyone advise me please, I want to conceal a blemish on someone's face. It's an interview with the camera locked off. Normally I would do this with a mask filter and then add loads of keyframes. However, although this person is sitting as they speak, their face moves around a lot. Over a 20sec shot it's a lot of work to keep the mask exactly in the same position on the face. Is there any reasonably priced software out there to do the job better, as a motion tracker? And is this something to expect in EDIUS anytime soon - as promised in v8, perhaps? Or is it possible somehow in the EDIUS mask filter in v7?

      If you need to do this now, download free DaVinci Resolve and search web for skin blemish removal using Resolve, there are several tutorials available, it has great tracking.

          I am amazed at how simple it is to remove a face blemish within Resolve. Quick and easy.

          1. Export a clip from EDIUS as a Quicktime HQX MOV file
          2. Load the clip into Resolve (for some reason I find I must close EDIUS first)
          3. Zoom in to the face blemish, open a "Window", then position and resize it to cover the blemish
          4. Select Blur and adjust the setting of the "Window" to your preference
          5. Select Color and adjust the color and gamma within the "Window" to your preference
          6. Select Tracking from the head of the clip (it adds keyframes automatically)
          7. Render as a Quicktime HQX with a name and location of your choice
          8. Import back into EDIUS - job done. And it was free!

          The tracking is amazing to watch in real-time. I sincerely hope we get something similar in the expected EDIUS v8 update at NAB.

          Thanks again for the tip.

            Would be nice if it would work that intuitive but knowing Ediys has always it's on way of doing things I'm excited but scared at the same time.....

              I'm curious how it will work. For now it's hard enough to animate 2 objects in two different tracks.
