Deep Video Fakes: Getting Easier and Better, Much Better

April 4, 2019

You may have seen one of the news stories explaining that unwanted artifacts can be removed from video. The magic is one of the features of Adobe After Effects, an application which requires some effort to learn. “Adobe Creative Cloud Updates – New Features for Video Post Production” stated:

[A] new feature for Adobe After Effects is the Content-Aware Fill. It enables users to automatically remove unwanted objects from the footage. Content-Aware Fill for video is powered by Adobe Sensei and it was first introduced in Photoshop. It automates the process of removing visual elements like boom mics, signs, logos and even people from footage, which should save hours of manual work.

Zap. Reality or lousy video footage “fixed.”

You can get a rundown of other tools which can help out, improve, or alter reality in “Top 5 AI-Powered Video Editing Tools.”

Will non US propaganda agencies find these tools useful?

    this feature has been around for years in Hollywood, an object can be lassoed and then the software tracks it and replaces it with background.
