Now you can remove objects from a video with the new version of After Effects
One of the most important features of Photoshop is the ability to remove objects from photographs. The software fills in the empty space by analyzing the pixels around it. Adobe has announced this same feature is now available in the new version of After Effects. You can now delete elements in a video, and the results are more than surprising.
A video is made up of many images, so it would be logical to think that each frame needs an individual treatment to disappear the object. This would take a long time, however, the California company took advantage of its Adobe Sensei technology, an artificial intelligence created to speed up tedious procedures when editing graphic content.
In this way, the application automatically tracks the item you want to remove. It tracks it in each image, no matter if it’s changing size or if the shot is showing it from other angles. Adobe ensures that it is even possible to disappear it when it passes behind another object. In the following video you can see how it works in detail.
Although Adobe Sensei does its job most of the time, it is possible to use Photoshop to create reference frames that guide artificial intelligence. The company points out that, beyond video production, its technology of removing objects and filling gaps can be applied to virtual reality experiences.
