... a 'dead' pixel on the camera's receptor chip that blighted every frame of video I shot on it. The problem always appeared in the same relative area, but deviated in position somewhat from frame to frame, and was exaggerated by appearing white with a black border... Is it possible to use a healing brush in After Effects or Premiere to correct this problem?
If it is, you'd probably have to apply it on a frame-by-frame basis. Ugh.
I think this camera had other problems than what you suspect. In my experience, a dead pixels are dead pixels, and they don't move around: they're dead, y'know? They CAN'T move. You might accumulate more of them over time, but none of them move.
Whatever the cause is immaterial, Dave. The fact that the pixel 'dances' is an advantage in that there is picture information before and after each frame if required for ther purposes of interpolation of picture information. As boring as it might be, I am quite prepared to 'paint' on a frame-by-frame basis. The question is, am I able to do so in AE, and if so, how.
Thanks, Andrew. This is just what the doctor ordered! NF
