Here's a clip from a film animation I did many years ago. It was done with paper cutouts which were moved under a glass platen.

 

Unfortunately, I didn't notice at the time that there were reflections in the glass which were picked up by the camera. You can see light vertical strips on the right and left of the picture.

 

Is there anything I can do in Premiere Pro to lessen or eliminate these reflections?

 

Many thanks.

Seán.

Take a still from the animation. Maks out a good section and use that to cover up the refelection. Might have to do it more than twice.

I made a colour matte the same colour as your background, put it on v2 and used the opacity mask to restrict the matte to the edges.

Thanks Richard. That sounds promising. I'll have to do a little practice with mattes. It might just work.
