I’m sure I’m overlooking something obvious, but am on a deadline and hoping someone can point in the right direction.
I’m doing a remove with a clean plate, something I’ve done many times.
I have the background layer and tracked, I have a hold out matte also tracked and a remove layer (in typical stack: holdout, remove, background). Then I made a clean plate at the best place in the middle.
Everything removes perfectly on that frame. But as I’m moving to the left/right the remove result shifts. It’s not taking the motion of the background vs. the clean plate into account for some reason.
I tried linking the remove layer both to the bg track, track it on it’s own, or none. To no avail.
I’m trying to do a single clean plate over 205 frames for consistency. Or is that a case where multiple clean front and back would help. I know there are some parameters to define the search range.
It’s a person standing in an exterior location with a mostly locked shot with minor tripod drift. There is an element in the landscape behind him that needs to be removed. So the clean plate simply clones that part out and removes that in all frames. The background is pretty static, some bushes in the distance.
