    Any ideas on how to remove these tape marks on a minute of stop motion footage? I tried cleaning in photoshop but when I bring it back into premiere you can see the clean-up moving. Tried rotoscoping the whole person out in AE but that didn’t look good either. Masking it out works best, but I feel like something automated could do this-like a plug-in. Any ideas?

    Make a clean plate of the floor and only mask the parts where the tape is showing. Make the mask only as big as needed and feather it.

    That’s what I’m doing. Thanks for your reply.

    Mocha Pro has a “remove object” module that I’ve seen give great results.

    Thanks! I was thinking about trying that.

    Mocha still requires tracking and/or masking to set what you want to remove, and it might not work that well on a timelapse where things are jumping around frame to frame.

    Like what Tero said.
    You need to find a constant image to keep it from jumping around.

    Keep that one image as your main floor.

    You might need to add a fake shadow that’s consistent to avoid pixel popping.

    Now all this has to be under the subject of course.
