Adobe demoed a number of technologies at Adobe MAX 2017 yesterday, including something called Cloak. It’s basically Photoshop’s Content-Aware Fill for video — you can easily remove unwanted things from video, as you can see in the 6-minute demo above.
After creating a mask that selects the object/area in your video you’d like to remove, the system will intelligently fill in that area in each frame.
The results are impressive.
Cloak can remove people entirely from a panning shot.
Or you can even narrow things down and only remove a small portion of the scene, like the chest strap from a guy’s backpack…
A handy use case for Cloak could be removing action camera tripods and mounts from shots. No word yet on if or when we’ll actually see Cloak arrive as a feature in a software release.
