Remove Object From Panned Shot...

At 9 seconds in, you will see a pair of feet and legs. I tried tools within Vegas to remove them- such as duplicating layers and keyframing one through the other via the masking in Pan/Crop. It doesn't look realistic. I did go back and reshoot the scene but I wanted to see if there were any other suggestions out there.

Here is the link:

I have BCC7.

I fell asleep waiting for the tilt down to the menu. Wow is that slow. (Or is that a part of the therapy?)

A reshoot is probably the easiest, but with BCC7 you could motion-track on the feet and overlay a plant there.

Thanks. I didn't think of putting an object over the feet- I just thought of replacing the feet with the carpet. Thanks Steve.

You know that they're feet and legs and so do we since you told us, but they're out of focus and don't move, so I wonder how many viewers would be able to tell what they are? I think that you might just want to leave it alone as anything you could do to hide them would likely just draw attention to the fix. If you really want to get rid of them, then reshoot it.

I did reshoot it. I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything (future thinking) I could have done. The plant idea I think is a good one- just have to match it up.

The reason I reshot it is they noticed it and asked if the feet could be removed from the shot (another video I did for them one lady asked if I could make her nose a little shorter!).

Thanks for feedback.
