  • Dust removal for multiple spots in single frame

    Posted by Chris Walker on January 7, 2023 at 10:06 pm

    I’ve removed a dust spot by making a duplicate layer, selecting the spot, inverting the layer, then repositioning the bottom layer to “cover” the spot. And I’ve used a Gaussian blur to remove spots — but I can’t seem to do multiple spots with either method. Is there a way to do this, or do I need to export the file multiple times — i.e., once for each blemish? Even as a QuickTime, that just sounds like image degradation waiting to happen…


    Many thanks for your help, expertise, and patience!!!

    Cant you put one duplicated layer beneath and then cut holes into the top video using small mask rings so its showing the bottom video thru. Then nudge the bottom video a little OFF… like to the right or left. This should show its effects on all the holes you cut. Basically its like a live clone stamp thing going on.

    I believe the Transform effect with a bunch of little masks can accomplish something similar to what Vik recommends as well.
