In response to a forum post: https://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/24652.page
"So, who has full version, please look, is there is option for 50i or 60i 3D BD.
And if it is, will source files be re encoded, or not? "

Localize Color Replacement

Utilizing PiP Designer's Chroma Key and Masks.
The aim is to create a background color which can be inserted into a video to replace an anomaly. This guide was created because of a post by Barry and his use, of a similar technique, to remove a reflection from a subject's glasses.: https://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/24807.page

Here's my Snapshot guide.
Actions:
1. Place a video into track 1
2. Place a duplicate video into Track 3
3. Place a Color Board into Track 2 - you can generate a specific new color board.
4. Highlight the Color board
5. select Modify
6. Select Masks tab
7. select the mask shown in the image (masks can be created and introduced into PiP Designer).
8. Uncheck "maintain ask aspect ratio"
9. reduce the size of the mask to suite.
10 Using the Grid Lines helps localize the area.
11. select Save.
12. Go to/select the Video in Track 3
13. Select Modify
14. select masks in PiP Designer
15. Uncheck "maintain mask aspect ratio"
16. Localize the area of the mask to overlay the color board.
17. Select Properties tab
18. Select Chroma Key
19. Enable Chroma Key.
20. select color using dropper (here white was chosen)
21. from the localized area white has been removed and the yellow color board shows through.
22. Select Save

The procedure is easy to carry out - finite work may be required to localize the background color (color board) and the area under the masked video. So long as the color is under the area removed it will display. Remember the area masked can be moved around in PiP Designer.

Color Board - PiP Designer/Mask


Track 3 Video/Mask


Chroma Key applied.

To call up Clip Attributes - see attached image.
Right click on Video/Image in a track,
Select Edit Clip Keyframe
Select Clip Attributes.

The placement changes to the frame and positioning of media in the preview screen can be localized manually with keyboard counter changes or by using click and drag. The positional changes in the XY location are easily noted in Clip Attributes.
