need help...

How would I go about removing wires from a shot?

the effect I'm going for is something moving without anything touching it, using wires to pull. Would I use AE and rotoscope it out? Or is there a better method?

Thanks

Many effects programs, like After Effects or commotion, have specific wire-removal tools. In essence, they copy the pixels in the immediate area of the wires and paint them over the wires.

You can do it manually with a cloning tool, also.
