A Trippy Look at Content-Aware Fill in Video

We’ve seen a lot of different uses for Content-Aware Fill since it was initially introduced as a feature of Photoshop. There have been plenty of failures and successes for the feature. All that I have seen have been in still images.

The above video, however, puts Content-Aware Fill to the test on moving images for an interesting (if, less than perfect) take on the feature.

After watching the video for a few seconds though, I started thinking about the information that is available frame to frame and how Content-Aware Fill could leverage this additional info for application in video. It is already possible to automate this process in Photoshop for a static scene with Image Stacks – like so.

So where is our Content-Aware Fill for video Adobe? Use those other frames to make this work.

Watch this Officiant Stop a Wedding to Tell the Wedding Photographer to Leave

Wedding Officiant Asks Photographer to Leave

Oh man, this is just painful to watch. I feel bad for the bride and groom, who are clearly caught off guard by the exchanged.

Muffled in the background, you can hear the photographer ask them “Do you want me to leave?” After the bride responds, the photographer and videographer move out.

Poor form on the officiant for sure. However, the photographer and videographer could have avoided being the center of attention (regardless of whether they were in the right) by taking two minutes to speak with the officiant beforehand – an exchange that should happen before any wedding ceremony.
