Hi ~

 

I'm trying to remove an image and I follow the instructions to grab a similar background but when I try and move it over to the image I want to remove, nothing happens. Please advise.

 

Thank you!

It is hard to tell from the information you have given what your are doing.

The way to do what (I think) you want to do is

Clip to fix on V1

identical copy of the clip on V1 on V2, directly above the clip on V1.

Use the Opacity mask to cut out an area of the clip on V2 that is just background

Once the mask is cut, use the Position and Scale parameters in Effect Controls pane under Motion for the clip on V2 to move the selected area of the background to cover the area on the clip on V1 you want to cover.
