So I just shot some footage for my latest disaster ( in both senses of the word ) movie and I noticed I have what look like some hot pixels my image. They don't change for the entire scene and are distracting.
In photoshop I would just use the clone brush to remove those. I can't think of a way in Vegas to elegantly do the same thing. I could make a new layer with the same video, shift it a couple of pixels over and then mask out the entire image apart from where the affected pixels are, but there has to be a better way?
E.g. I want to copy over my stuck pixel with an adjacent pixel so that it changes with the rest of the image?
Any thoughts on how to achieve that?
Thanks. I'm gonna try doing an offset and mask and render to a new uncompressed track and then use that in my footage.
If that doesn't work I'll try the plug in mentioned for Vegas, although the review didn't make it sound that fun.
Hopefully my hotspots have gone away now... I did the sensor cleaning thing...

another trick (taken from time lapsers) is to shoot some footage with the lens cap on immediately after you're done shooting (so the sensor is in the same state/temperature) - use that to create an inverse mask - it won't be perfect but black spots stand out much less than white ones.

So the scary part of this is that, I did the sensor cleaning remap thing to get rid of the stuck pixels and it worked but since then I have a new set of stuck pixels.
I'm a bit worried there is something wrong with my 5D. It never used to do this.
