Image Rest. - Dust & Scratch Removal

Need detailed instructions and/or video tutorial for this.

Hi,

Have you looked through our free video tutorials which are located here?

I did not see tutorial for dust and scratch. Also, Neal Berkowitz said he didn’t know of one.

Ok, so no detailed how-to videos on that filter but it’s really simple so I’ll explain how to use it.

The filter has a median blur base and will apply the blur through an internal mask. The mask is set by the user via the threshold slider - lower values will open the filter to operating on more of the image. The radius parameter controls the strength of the blur and so higher values in the radius parameter will produce a more blurry result.

And you can also use the integrated PixelChooser to isolate the effect to a user defined region or matte.

This effect is good for minor dust busting but that’s about it. It’s not really going to do a great job of cleaning archival footage where there is a lot of dirt, scratches and noise - for that you need a different product.

So perhaps you could post an sample image and we can try to offer the best solution to clean it.

Cheers,
Peter.

Thank you for your reply. We’re seeing the various settings for it, but don’t see a way to remove this X and target from the screen, even after rendering per attached screen grab.

Hi,

The red X in the image that you’re seeing is a watermark, which means that the software cannot locate a valid license. Are you working with a licensed system? If so then you might need to reset your license.

Peter,

We purchased the full Continuum package and all other effects are working.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for letting me know. We need to open up an official support case and have a tech figure out why this particular effect is watermarking, which it absolutely should not be doing on your system. Can you please create a support ticket via this portal :

Many thanks,
Peter.
