I was wondering if the chromanator could take out wires in a shot? You know for like wire-fu type shots.

Yes, Chromanator has an unique masking system that can take even the hardest of objects away, like in the example below, where the scaffolding and walls were taken away.

I believe you need to create a garbage matte to remove them. It will be less complicated if you shoot against a green/bluescreen than if you shoot against a real set/background.

As long as you had a clean background plate (ie, a version of the same shot without the actors/wires in it, which you can use to replace the 'holes' left by the removal process) it would be a relatively simple job.

Actually, as long as the shot is a tripod shot and you have a clean bacground plate, it'll be easy as pie (yes, pie).

Right i need help with this topic too, I'm filming with wires and wondered about shots that involved movement of the camera, can i still erase the wires because it's near enough impossible to recrate the same movement twice when filming, so i won't have my background plate. would i have to break all the frames down and individualy erase the wire in photoshop, then put the frames back together and make it a movie again???

Yes, you could do that, and assemble an animation in Imageready and export that as a movie (i'm pretty sure you can do that), but it would be very time consuming.
