help me remove extreme halo

Hey people i need help in removing extreme halo, i have tried horizontal blur, etc it removes parts of it but i then loose details further and its blurred.
now is there a way to mask out edges and blur or remove the halo somehow with overlay? so it dont effect the rest of the image on the halo bit?

i can manually do it, but i need a way to do this in batch mode and the pics are different, can someone help me out thanks.

hi kopmjj and welcome to RP.

not sure what you mean by halo there, but if you're referring to the white line under and along the length of the arm, i'd use clone and push (smudge in photoshop) to get rid of it.

Re: help me remove extreme halo

I do film transfers and editing as part of my business, and to me, it looks like you're working on restoring/fixing a film. There's no real easy way to do this by batch, per se. A median or noise reduction filter might help, but it's gonna cause some damage to the detail of the video.

Some video software packages offer solutions to help you fix this right in the video itself; such as Adobe After Effects.

But, there's no quick, easy way to do it ..... you're gonna have to get down and dirty and detailed to fix this.

is it possible to try to fix this in after effects using find edges then use that as mask than apply blur? so it only effects the edges and not the whole picture?

I'm not overtly familiar with After Effects personally, because I've only seen other people use it; I never needed it for my own work, since I don't do any heavy post production work outside of clipping, cut scenes, camera transitions, and laying out audio tracks etc. But, I've seen other people use it to remove objects and distractions from videos using tracking points. So, I imagine it could do what you're looking for somehow, you just need someone familiar with AE who could point you in the right direction.

Re: help me remove extreme halo

if this is a video, i'd check out video editing software. and if it's an mpeg 2 or later format, you may find a batch method, but i'm not real familiar with vid editing. but i'm fairly sure you're not going to find anything in a still editor to batch edit with the kind of precision you want. still, cs5 has some pretty incredible new tools, so never say never.

Re: help me remove extreme halo

video editing is, or at least can be, quite different from still editing. i mentioned mpeg 2 because it was the first one that didnt try to capture all of an image in every frame. basically, it just looked for differences from the last frame and captured only that part to save memory and file space. thus, i would think a video editor might well be able to work on the same principle... if you edit one thing in one frame, it would carry forward to the next in a like manner... sort of.

thus, again, i'd recommend looking into finding a good video editor.
