Removing Acne

I have a father of the groom reviewing a wedding highlight of his son and he asked me if it was possible to remove the acne on his sons face in a few shots. I'm sure this is possible somehow but I don't know how.

Is this a realistic request?

Re: Removing Acne

Include a bottle a Clearasil with the dvd. Lol

I once had a client ask me to edit the video to make her less fat.

Re: Removing Acne

Maybe in after effects by placing a mask over the acne and track the face? I had a bride last year with acne, in such a case I stay clear from extreme closeups and just keep more distance.

Re: Removing Acne

There are some "digital makeup" plugins available that give varying results. I have one from FCPeffects.com and it kinda sorta works sometimes: https://www.fcpeffects.com/collectio...kin-smoother-2

Re: Removing Acne

Photoshop can handle video. Use Healing brush on a layer and setup an action.

good point
I'm more sensitive to this now. One should never lose sight of filming what's most flattering that means a wider shot for the older less attractive.

Re: Removing Acne

i have some of the sheffield softworks plugins, which include several digital makeup programs. Pretty incredible. should be able to get a trial to see if they work for you.

Re: Removing Acne

There are some Mocha tutorials around showing how to do this. Not sure I'd get Mocha just for this, but the AE version will probably do it.

Re: Removing Acne

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I just told him I couldn't remove acne in video like they can in photos and he was fine with it.
