Newbie Advice

I have installed the Mocha Pro plugin for After Effects as a trial. I was hoping it would solve my problem. This video of Drone footage needs to have the road on the right taken out. I have watched the tutorials on the Remove Feature, however I am not doing something right. Would you suggest to me the best way to approach this? Thank you in advance.

Hi there,

The remove tool is not a good solution for this. You have too many FG trees moving over the area. What I would try is offsetting the ground above the road down with a roto shape and then compositing the trees back over the top of that. It’s so far towards the edge and not at the focal point I think you can get away with that workflow. But the remove can’t do much when you have semi transparent objects moving over the area you want to move, occluding BG pixels.

Please let me know if you have any more questions and I will be happy to help you.


Thank you Mary I will try that.
