Quickie question for any masters out there
Ref a test i done once - With a background vid in place and a CG layer on top that is masked by an alpha channel to only show the required object, I have had several comments saying that the edge going around the object (defined by the alpha) is too sharp against the background footage !
I have tried all sorts of grading filters like defocus and Gaussian blur on the upper layer but this appears to soften the alpha (and my whole object) which ends up showing more from the upper layer instead of mixing the pixels of the upper layer with those from the layer below.
Is there a filter in visionlab that will (for want of a better expression) only Dither the 'border' around my object and the lower layer by 'x' pixels ??
If you zoom in close to a vid in VL you notice that pixels kind of mix (dither) together when moving from one colour to another on the plate, if the masked layer above is to look integrated into this background layer then the border between the two layers will need feathering /dithering / mixing just a bit. Doesn't it ?????
Question is......How ?
