Hi everyone. I want to remove the middle pillar that lying on two different parallax,the road and the curb. Mocha can remove the upper part cause enough BG information but need a clean plate by photoshop for the lower part cause the pillar base stick on the ground I don't know how the finish two parts under same module.

I need to remove the upper part, export to video and put it into AE and MOCHA again for the lower part....

Could anyone give me a hand?

Here provide my footage. Thank you very much.

Hi Anson!

That shot does not actually look too difficult - though sometimes looks can be deceiving.

First track the pole to create a garbage matte and define the area you want to remove.

You should then be able to track both the sidewalk and the road behind the pole separately. Avoid linking the layers though as they are not physically touching. That should give you a clean background track for the base and the top of the pole you want to remove.

I've actually done something pretty similar in my Advanced Remove tutorial here:


You will have to use a clean plate if you want to do it in one pass though. Otherwise you'll need to process the video twice. However, the clean plate should also make the remove process quicker and the clean plate can cover up both the top and the base of the pole at the same time. Mocha will correctly 'project' that clean plate onto the separate background tracks you have to remove the pole

Let me know how you go!

Cheers,

Tobias

The remove is looking really good Anson!

You can achieve the same result with one render pass if you create a clean plate right off the bat from a still frame and Photoshop out both the top and the bottom of the pole - but this approach works as well. You are essentially using Mocha to create the top part of your clean plate for you
