The video is poor quality, everything can be done if you have lot of time and rotoscoping is your hobby.

Practically, there is no ez one click solution.

@Marty111 That's an enormous challenge. As @FayFen says, it's do-able but I wouldn't like the task 😟

@Marty111 - Impossible, and I have MOCHAPRO. There’s just enough in only the first seconds to get a Transparent Mask through 2nd Color Corrector, but that another story, which you wouldn’t like 😉.

Managing the expectations of Users is awfully high. No, no-1-click solution.

As per FayFen ... and the YT video is just 480p.

However, if this video is your production, or your have the copyright owner's permission to re-edit the video, you should have access to an HD or 4K version of the video or even the original video elements that were used to edit the video. That will give you a better chance to work on it.

I wouldn't mind if it looks amateurish like a poor 1980's tv collage or something like that. Would even that be hard to achieve ?

It could be done, the way it was done a century ago -- by rotoscoping of each individual frame. See you in 2022?

+1 @Musicvid  ... how does one rotoscope the opening shot with the singer flaying her arms about in 480p and with any hope of tracking those dodgy edges - even in Mocha Pro. It wouldn't seem that the OP has access to the original footage which suggests ....

Unfortunately, I don't have access to a better quality than the youtube video. But it would be ok if the edges aren't clean, I'm not looking for a clean thing that would give the illusion that the background wasn't removed.

I guess rotoscopy is how the "Take on me" A-ha song clip was made?

@Dexcon you do it frame by frame, the old fashioned way.

@Marty111 given when the video was made, that's a good guess. Someone, somewhere has probably done a breakdown by now.

I fully understand that. But have a look on YT at the original YT upload - it's a murky 480p video and it will be very hard to find a good edge on the flaying arms of the dancer to set a good mask around. Like I said earlier, the OP needs to get the original HD/4K footage to do this well.
