I would take a captured frame like the one you posted, use Photoshop to draw the guy's head out of the picture, delete everything but the top left hand corner, and save it as a png where all the frame is transparent except that top left hand corner. Then I would generate another track in Vegas and have that png overlaid over the offending portions of the video. I've made up the png and will email it to you if you want. I sent you a private email with my contact info if you want to try this.

Thanks Nate & Laurence, but I was able to fix it in Vegas. Took about 30 seconds after I figured out which words to search on.

  • Drew a mask over the original video (see mask.jpg)
    • set MODE = negative, this reverses the mask and hides the guy's head
    • applied light feathering - 7.2%, this blends it nicely with the original video

  • Put a clean video clip underneath original video to replace the corner of the video (see timeline.jpg)

I'll post a before & after video clip when I've got it fine tuned. Still needs a little bit of work.

What a disappointment! I thought the guy's head was a fantastic artistic risk... I mean, my eye was drawn nowhere else in that frame... absolutely nowhere else.

I'm looking at the framegrab right now... yup, eyes to the upper left. Up..., and to the left. Up......, and to the left.

I admit.... it takes some discipline to keep from staring at the beer.

Whoops, forgot to post the results, it's very girly so I don't know if this is the audience for it but here it is anyway. Shot in one night, edited in a couple more. Canon XH A1 24F / Sony Vegas + Cinescore / Lowell Pro + Tota lights ... blah, blah, blah ... you get the picture. Not much of a plot just mostly goofing around. We did this while we were cooped up during the winter and needed to find something to do inside.

Wait ... there's a guy's head in that frame? It's a trick question, right?

The only thing I'm disappointed in is their choice of beer.
