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.

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.

We are all so consumed by what is going on in our circles that somewhere on the path to the most amazing iPhone or Android smartphone we forgot to enjoy real-life moments. And it rings perfrectly true in this short film (above) written by Charlene deGuzman.

As firefighters went into a burning home in Fresno, California, one of them found a lifeless kitten on the floor of a room in a house.  He then took the kitten outside and administered a tank of oxygen to it and poured water on it in an attempt to revive it.

Lucky the Kitten

That firefighter, Cory Kalanick, was wearing a helmet cam and caught the act on film. He edited the 15-minute ordeal down to about a minute by creating a faux movie trailer about saving Lucky the kitten’s life. [click to continue…]

Earlier today at the first round of the British Open, PGA pro Thomas Bjorn hit a ball out of the rough on the first hole and struck the camera that was capturing his swing.

Commentator Mike Tirico said the camera costs around $80,000. And while it appears to only be the lens that was damaged, those HD ENG zoom lenses generally cost a pretty penny themselves. [click to continue…]
