That does make sense. Thank you!
I tried a clean plate and it worked great. Save for issues feathering the edges of the “remove” matte that didn’t quite work for every frame. I don’t know why it was soft for some frames and hard for others.
Is there a specific order of operations as far as setting the feather edge?
The overpainting of the plate worked great BTW. I was a bit unsure about screwing it all up since the clean plate looked really bad once I overpainted, but I now get the idea that Mocha needs to see a lot of clean pixels and only replaces the area of the “remove” matte.
I also tried to remove the Nike logo on her hat and found that checking the “use only clean plates” box got me better results for that logo.
I’ll try the idea of drastic over painting for the hat area as well and see what happens. My clean plate will be a bunch of hat color all around her head, but if it works it works.
Thank you for the guidance as to how Mocha actually looks for clean pixels. I was trying to avoid going into Photoshop to paint a clean plate for a logo remove. Oh well.
