Compositor Nodes 3dbb Spot-Clone, Move-Spot-Clone

Here are my Spot-Clone-02, Move-Spot-Clone-01 compositor nodes.

Spot-Clone-02. Remove spots. Builtin ellipse to mask out spots from stills or footage. Clone from BLU spot is relative to the target RED spot.

Inputs. Scale-Master. Scale the dot size. X-Scale-Ind. Scale X independently. Y-Scale-Ind. Scale Y independently. Angle. Change the angle of the spot. X-Spot-1. Move the RED target spot in X Direction. Y-Spot-1. Move the RED target spot in Y Direction. Feather. Feather the spot. X-Offset-2. X offset for the BLU clone from spot 2. Y-Offset-2. Y offset for the BLU clone from spot 2. Smooth-Col-1. Smoothes the color, only avalable with the Col1-Texture2 output. Texture. Amount of texture from the BLU spot, only avalable with the Col1-Texture2 output.

Outputs. Clone2. clones the image from the BLU spot to the RED spot. Clone-Only. The clone spot over a transparent background. Col1-Texture2. Outputs the color from the target RED spot, and the texture from the BLU spot. Col-Text-Only.Color texture over a transparent background. Location. Visualize the the target and clone spots for the setup.

Move-Spot-Clone-01. Use it to move the spot clone with a tracker.

Add tracking data for the spot you want to remove. Add a tracking node and connect it to Move-Spot-Clone-01. set the tracking node to relative, and the spot clone will move with the track.

This is only for simple spot removal. If you need to do something more complex you can set up complex Maskes, Roto and Tracking the usual way.

Sorry for the crappy animated gifs.

Have fun.

    Glad you like it. I'm finding it really convenient. If you have multiple spots to remove it's much faster to put the orig image into each node and combine the transparent outputs with alpha over nodes, then alpha over the orig image at the end. I have an updated version that does that and adds some on off switches and stuff. I'll upload it later.

    This will help me a lot, because I use many stock photos in my renders. Thanks much! Now I'm more motivated to use 2D in learning Blender!

    Glad this is motivation for you. I'm always looking for things to motivate me to do something different too.
