Bought Sony Vegas Movie Studio today to edit some pre-shot footage.
The problem is we’re amateurs and when we shot the scenes, the were occasions at various points (which we didn’t notice during filming!) where a stray car or person appeared at the sides of the shot.
We want to keep the shots (as they were good takes) but what’s the best way to eliminate (or hide) the unwanted bits – can we erase or blur the edges of the scene, maintaining focus on the main shot?
What size is the footage? if you shot in 1080 you can edit the clip as 720 and scale out the unwanted objects.
