Background removal + compositing


#1

I’m playing with the following for video (waiting for green screen to arrive)

In the meantime…

Here’s a base image

garden

Run it through the Sketch filter and you get this…

garden_sketch

Got to https://www.remove.bg/ (nothing bigger than 360p) and you get this

garden-removebg

It messed my thumb up so I just painted over it in pink (didn’t need the image anyway, it’s just to use as a mask)

Stick these images in layers (I used paint.net) then used the version with the background removed to mask the originals

End results are a lot better IMHO

garden_sketch2 garden_sketch3


#2

In the next version there will be an automatically background removal feature. So stay tuned.


#3

In the “next version” background removal is missing


#4

Also looking forward to this feature


#5

If you want something to try out while we wait…

It’s a Python script (yuk) but it works to an extent (missed a bit of a test image of mine)

***** Warning *** It uses a 500M data file you have to download!**
