Resolve Paint Tool

Postby Chris B » Tue Jul 30, 2019 4:32 pm

In my continued occasional experiments with Resolve I've used the Paint feature to correct some dirt on my lens. I had a shot of an Island taken balanced on a rock on the beach. I have some dirt in my zoom which doesn't show up most of the time however skies are a particular problem. So a frame from the video out of the camera.

Some rotation and increasing the saturation and it looks like this.

Which has only made the spots worse :(.

Resolve has a "paint" tool as part of the Fusion page that you to paint onto a video frame in a similar way to photoshop.

One of the tools is a clone brush so I cloned some nearby sky/clouds for each of the sections and frame from the the new video looks like this:

Obviously this works because the image is largely static. If you were panning you'd have to be a lot more clever with it but I think it's a significant improvement.
