FXPHD Roto Class 2

Just wanted to show some of the class work I’m learning in FXPHD. This class is about paint and roto, so removing unwanted things from the shot.

Here’s the source footage. Notice the guy on the stairs:

Now we took a still from the shot. Took it into Photoshop and using clone and other tools removed the guy on the stairs. We then tracked the shot back into the source and tried to match the camera move and camera parallax.

Here’s the final shot:

    Wow, impressive… I could never get it that close. What software did you use?

    Photoshop and After Effects. The still was “fixed” in Photoshop and then the tracking and roto was done in After Effects.
