    Bad Pixel!

    Level 1
      My old XL1 has a bad pixel. This means there is one pixel on the image that is always lighter than the others.

      QUESTION: Can this be covered up with Premiere?

      QUESTION 2: Can it be fixed?

      Thank you.

          I'm not sure if there's a new, exciting "dead pixel replacement" effect in the new version, but the way we used to have to do this was to export a single frame from the affected footage, bring it into Photoshop and fill everything with black except for a single white pixel in the same spot as the dead pixel. If you use that as an image matte for a duplicate of the original footage, shifted one pixel left or right, the variation is almost impossible to notice. It's just fiddly and time consuming.

            You could try VirtualDub with the LogoAway filter. (Treating the stuck pixel as a very tiny logo. :))
