1) with general (green) brush win process

2) with alt brush in process

3) the resulting shape

there are many details to check and the easiest way is to see them on screenshot

Hey.Thank you for your mail. I can take a new screenshot if you need more
information.
I tried write on pictures how I did.

I wonder why I did not get the red minus cross on the screenshot.I took
many with red on different places and it never came on photo.
I hope you can read if not so please ask.



Warm greetings Mirja

Anna, if i understood you right you got no screenshot.I sent them as a nswer to your email..

Now I found this way to send.

This with rotobrush controll panel i am not sure you get.

I hope you can see what i do wrong.if not we can continue if you have time.

I go  a course - a long 400 lection. - on AE,... some short in Motion Craphic.

I really want learn AE. It has so many possibilities. to make very good videos

.Boring only use bought videos..

Wish you all the best and write if these screenshots are wrong.or say anything.   Mirja

I see the screenshots. thanks, they look correctly. So please try to create a short clip from your original video and add a link for me to check the situation.

Also would be VERY USEFUL if you could put somewhere the project file and add the link here as well.

Maybe, the problem is with Preferences, maybe something in tool settings or so.

 

Meanwhile, try to find a frame where is the best contrast between the character and the background, and try to use it as a staring frame for rotobrush. This may help. 

And keep in mind that such long and non-contrast video will take a ton of time to make it well. This tool works fine with short and well-prepared footage.

is it a real project or just a training?

Do you have thid problem with any video or just this one?

for training I would suggest to try another video, with better contrast between for/back (e.g. the 5th video in your source folder)

if possible, render please a short fragment (about 10 sec enough) of your original video, put it somewhere (Google Drive, Dropbox or any file keeper which you like) and add a link here so that I (or someone who will join this conversation) can try to find what is the point.

At mine, it's quite late now, so I can continue tomorrow.

well, video with your using AE would be useful, but the best thing is if you share your project (AE) file with this video. It would allow to see all settings and try to find the issue.

Hey, How to share AE files so you see setting? Shall i take screenshot of every file. 

I was so stupid yesterday when i took down  new Ae. with same settings.Ae and PS are very stable.

I have had Ae many years without using it, so i decide that I must learn it and AI or stop sub.

I will learn both.

put the AE file somewhere (e.g. Google Drive) and add the link here. And make sure that the video also is uploaded with the AE file.
