How to remove a filmed dead white pixel...

Julius_ wrote on 12/4/2015, 9:19 AM
Hi,

I have this tiny little speck of white dust that was probably a dead pixel inside my camera....this tiny white dot is at the same spot throughout the video..it's most visible when the image is black....anyone know how I can mask this?

Thanks

Just add a generated mask with a transparent background, 127,127,127

If you need to have it match the surrounding video you can add a copy of the video to the track above, use Pan/Crop to move it one pixel in any direction (or more if the spot is bigger than one pixel) and add the cookie cutter effect. Set the cookie cutter's size and position to cover the bad pixel on the original track and it will replace it with the nearby pixel from the new track.

Chienworks....
I copied the track but I'm not sure how you use the pan/crop.

The pixel doesn't move, which is a good thing..I tried duplicating the event, then I added a linear blur and use the cookie cutter to move it where the white pixel was. Seems to work but I have to copy the fx to every event.

Thank you!
musicvid10: ummm, you lost me... I see Media generators..but no transparency or where to put those numbers.

Here's a link to a filter written for Vegas, PixelPatcher http://www.playtool.com/pages/pixelpatcher/pixelpatcher.html I've downloaded it but have not tried it as of yet.

In the event that you have Boris Continuum Complete (BCC) or Boris Red, there is a tool to easily correct for dead pixels.

Wwaag: I download that pixelpatch and it works wonders..without having to duplicate the video track...it was so good that it caught a 2nd dead pixel that I didn't see!

I can put it as an FX for the whole track instead of just the event..double great!
(works with Vegas 12 and 13)

Thanks all for your comments!! Very much appreciate this forum!

Wow I didn't know how popular my 7d is with hot pixels.

Thanks Jim for that post!!!

Sorry, I had to come back to this thread and say thank you again to wwaag.

The pixelPatch works extremely well...so well that it located another dead white pixel that I didn't even see at first.
Super easy to use too!

Thank you soo much!

@julius

You're very welcome. Glad it worked well for you and thanks to you for giving feedback. I've downloaded it, but have not tried it as of yet. I have a bunch of old Hi8 footage from the late 90's shot with a Canon that has a very conspicuous white spot. I tried using the Delogo filter in Virtualdub referenced in one of the above posts, but the results were not the best. Again, glad it was of use.
