(AE 2021) trying to content aware fill a subject out of this footage but all it does id generate a fill layer that completely empty, practically useless. Ive watch many tutorials and I follow their instructions exactly yet i get the same error. I've also tried an older version of AE and it still doesn't work. I've only seen one other person online with this issue and that question is unanswered. I'd appreciate if I could get some help.

 

Heres some before and after images, as you can see the fill layer is there but its a png for some reason and it does absolutely nothing

Have you tried viewing the created Fill Layer in the Layer Panel? Does it look OK there? Have you checked the Fill Layer's Transform properties to ensure nothing untoward has been introduced? I just noticed your plate is a 3D layer. Is there a reason that it's a 3D layer? What happens if you set it to 2D and re-apply CAF and follow this with a Nesting routine and then turn the nested comp into a 3D layer; does this create expected results with a more refined and structured workflow?

That is a huge hole to fill. You are going to have to create a fill using Photoshop. Have you gone through the user guide on content-aware fill? Photoshop couldn't fill that hole automatically. There is just not enough surrounding information.

It doesn't look like you've used a reference frame (apologies if you have and I'm missing it), typically with content-aware fill the more info you have give AE the better.   In this case a reference frame could be used by AE to help fill in the blank space.

 

Edited to say - you can then bring this into Photoshop and fill in the space, then back in AE the software can use the still as a guide (or reference)
