We’ve all been there. You’re sent a clip only to see something unexpected in the shot — a light fixture, wires or a crew member to name a few. But you have to use that shot. Technical challenges happen. And it’s up to us to “fix it in post.”
Typically as Avid editors, we might send the footage out to a VFX company to remove the unwanted element. But why do that when we can do advanced fixes with 3rd party plug-ins and stay inside Media Composer.
The Mocha Pro 5 plug-in introduces an advanced effects workflow into your Avid timeline. You can easily remove objects without having the added extra step of sending it out & waiting for it to come back to use it in the project. Bonus points if you’re cutting down on overall costs by doing so.
In this short tutorial, I’ll show how you can remove a mic boom in 3 quick steps using Mocha Pro’s planar tracking and amazing Remove Module inside Avid Media Composer.
The Remove Module uses Mocha’s Academy Award-winning planar motion tracking and “temporal frames” to automatically remove unwanted objects. It’s just one of the many tools inside Mocha Pro that removes (get it?) everyday post and VFX obstacles from your daily to-do list. Visit Boris FX to learn more about Mocha Pro.
