I have a colour timed 4444 master and there are some scenes with subtitles from the post house. Unfortunately, the post supervisor never asked for a textless master.
So far, I tried painting out the subtitles, but obviously they are fixed in one place so motion tracking doesn’t help.
Secondly, I tried going frame by frame, which is tedious then export the clip, re-import and create a mask around the area and track, and paint over so it looks similar. tedious and depending on the scene, doesn’t always produce good enough results and inconsistencies can be scene.
What I would like to do, is take a frame/scene before the subtitles pop in, take that into fusion (not sure if I would have to export it into a separate clip then re-import it into resolve, ((because I don’t think fusion can paint from a prior clip in the timeline, if so please let me know how to achieve that)) then drag it from the bin into fusion to create another media in). Once in fusion then have that into monitor view 1 and my scene with the subtitles on monitor view 2, then paint from the clip without subtitles over the clip with subtitles.
So, in essence, paint from the clip without subtitles over the clip with subtitles and track as best as possible.
Would there be a better way for better results? or if I am missing a step from my idea above would any of you assist me in the steps to take to produce the desired results?
Thank you very much!
