URGENT: Removing Foreground Line On Video

PostMon Feb 10, 2020 10:28 pm

Hello,

I was on set working on a project when all of a sudden, a yellow horizontal line appeared on my camera. I realized that the same yellow line was also showing in the recordings. The camera wasn't drop nor was liquid spilled on it. The line literally showed up in between takes from nowhere.

My question is, can I remove the line without affecting the image with Fusion or resolve? It's a little tricky because the line is not int he background but the foreground. Anyone have any suggestions or ways to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You can check out this tutorial, should help.

I did a test with a green line going across the footage, and using the wire removal did a pretty good job.

Thanks for the video tutorial, it definitely helped. I was able to remove the line. However, the issue I'm having now is that since the line is in the middle of the screen, it makes it very difficult to remove when it's over people's faces. Any ideas or tips on how to fix that?

Unfortunately there's no easy fix for that. It can take a skilled compositor many hours to paint out something like that. It's not as bad as if it were a moving artifact, but it's still not something that can be reliably automated if you need to maintain the resolution.
