Manual spot removal software?
#1
A lot of the silents I fix have sloppy spot removal that results in frozen cloning from adjacent frames, like this:[Image: dxIvg1C.gif]

I want to clone over frozen repairs, not from immediately adjacent frames as seen in this gif, but from arbitrarily distant frames to maintain motion. I also need to align/transform the patch to the new frame and have control over brush softness, like in Photoshop.

What are some software options that will let me do this? Preferably affordable or with student licensing. PFClean and Resolve Studio look close, but I can't tell if their manual tools are still automated. I don't want the software hunt for dirt, but only clone the area I select.

Neat Video is a global filter. It doesn't offer manual cloning.

DustBuster+ looks like a good option. I like the demo, but it doesn't say the cost, which is always a bad sign.

Neat video does offer manual cloning.. not sure what you're saying, I'm a bit tired.

I'm looking for manual temporal cloning. It's like Photoshop's Clone Stamp tool, but the source area is on a different frame. And with no automated fixes.

I still don't see it offered on Neat. Where do you see it?

I can give you a walkthrough in a bit.. have you followed their step by step on their web page? And are you in Vdub, Premiere.. Resolve?
Also.. do you need film grain? I got 4k film grain, 16/35mm, coarse, fine, etc.
