Using F_WireRemoval

This chapter looks at the removal of wires from images using F_WireRemoval.


Many effects movies feature complicated stunts that require an actor to be suspended by wires for their safety. These wires need to be digitally removed.

There are many ways of doing this, including painting the wires out frame by frame and replacing large parts of the background to cover the wires. The method used depends on the type of image under the wire. F_WireRemoval is particularly good at replacing the painting method but it also includes tools to assist in clean plating when new backgrounds have to be tracked into place.
