I'm using CS6 and I want to delete a tiny cursor from near an animated line, about 2 seconds worth of animation. The cursor was recorded when I did the animation. I don't need instructions, I just want to find out the easiest tool to use.

 

I have tried the 4-point Garbage Matte, but when I draw the outline, everything outside the outline is removed. And I want just the opposite. Is there a way to invert the operation of a Garbage Matte?

 

My next step is to make a tiny circular mask in Photoshop, and use the Track Matte Key effect, then move the mask to remove the cursor.

 

Any suggestions?

Use crop tool on a non showing cursor section on a superimpose clip and move the clip to the postion of the cursor on the underlaying track.
