How To Remove Objects From A Scene With Blender

CGMatter looks into tracking, and projections to remove objects in Blender.

One of the most popular tools for tracking and removing objects from a shot is Mocha Pro. This program can be used with 3D cameras, but things get more complicated when 2D compositing or video post production needs arise because this software does not have those features. In order to work around these limitations you could use Blender which has some great capabilities in both 2D graphics as well as VFX (video effects).

In this three-part tutorial from CGMatters, they cover the steps to remove objects from your shot. The first part covers a technique that uses tracking and projection paintings for generating clean plates which will track over original footage.
