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