i have a shot in an office where i have a subject walking in front of some really bright windows. i added an adjustment layer and made 6 mask squares over the windows and brought down the brightness a bit. of course when the subject walks in front of those windows you can see the shaded mask on him.
im not sure what you call it but what do i do to him to keep the mask from showing on him?
not sure if i should make another thread but ill ask this as well in here...in the same shot because of the bright windows originally the rest of the scene inside the office is dark. how do i brighten the rest of the scene without affecting the windows? i tried duplicating the adjustment layer with the 6 masks and inverting them so i can brighten everything but windows but no matter what i did i couldnt get it to work.
think layers... you need to separate the person from the background on another layer with an animated mask. This is called Rotoscoping. RotoBrush is a tool that may work.
Same thing for your second question, LAYERS, not duplicate adjustment layers, but duplicate your scene, do your masking, apply adjustments and you will be OK.
