How do I remove stationary object and not affect other video

Postby Rhyzel » Tue Apr 14, 2009 6:25 pm

Hi,

I have a general effect question. I am trying to eliminate the white text on the bottom left corner of the screen. I figured that I could just add a black box or something and it would effectively remove it. The two pictures displays how the scene progresses until it fades out. The text remains stationary while the rest of the scene progresses without touching any part of the text. If anyone knows of a guide to help me with this effect, it would help me greatly.

Thanks :-)


EDIT: Having trouble getting the photos uploaded. I will add them later. If anyone can help me without scene pictures, just let me know.

Hey Aaron. Thanks for the Pale Cocoon reference. I am 42% done with the D/L right now. I just got the two photos up. I don't know if cropping would do the trick. I am still incredibly new to video editing and I don't know much about the software. After seeing the pictures, do you think cropping might be able to remove the white text without affecting the rest of the scene? I also want to add another scene to fade into this one, so I'm not sure if cropping would mess that effect up.

Oh, something more like that... Yeah, cropping would zoom into much and probably effect it. Like you said yourself, the best way is probably just to put a black solid over the characters and keep moving it. If you're having a scene fade in, just start the fade of the solid as you start the fade of the scene. That should work out pretty good.

Awesome. Now... could you help me find a guide to help me do that :-P I seriously have close to zero experience with Adobe Premiere and I am trying to learn as much as I can.

I don't really use Premiere anymore, but what I would think you would have to do is put a new solid layer of black on top of the layer of the scene. Since I don't think Premiere has masking, you're going to have to use a cookie cutter (don't know what it's called in Premiere) like effect, and make it so that the characters aren't showing anymore. Then just keyframe the effect to keep the characters hidden.

press f1 and try searching for mask, masking, or garbage matte (i think thats right). if you don't find anything come back here, but expect a complicated answer :P

Found some interesting stuff. It will just take some time to tinker around with it. Thanks for giving me the tip. I really have no idea what many of the video effects/transitions do. Do you know of a website/video tutorial that shows me what all of the effects actually are?

Nope sorry... there's a site called creativecow or something simlar that has tutorials on a bunch of software. best thing to do is to just play around with everything and see what happens.

If you have Adobe Photoshop you could use the clone tool to get rid of something like the ship in that picture. Just do that for every frame and your set :up:
