Which filmmaker doesn&t know the situation where an otherwise perfect shot is ruined by a person running through the picture? This is especially annoying if there is no second chance for a re-shoot or if the error is only noticed during viewing. With Erazr, ProDAD offers a tool which is supposed to remedy this by simply removing the disturbing object from the image during post-production.
First the unwanted object is marked in the intelligent automatic tracking mode. If this doesn&t work or for fine work there is also a manual tracking mode to safely identify the object to be removed. After an analysis process, Erazr automatically replaces the object with the original background, which is covered by the object. To do this, Erazr needs a few seconds of footage before and after the object to be removed is out of view.
Some sample clips on the Erazr website illustrate the way it works - moving objects such as people as well as static objects can be removed from film material with a camera movement. Up to 31.October gibt´s Erazr to the introductory price of approximately 400 euro, afterwards it costs 500 euro. Whether the purchase of the quite expensive porigram is worthwhile and whether the quality meets your own requirements can be tested with the demo version.
