Full function overview 

  • Process
    View the summed output (original image + filled areas) or just the filled areas, 
    or show just the alpha filled as white.
    Info setting to allow you to see which areas have been patched and the edges of the image detected, and which areas have been detected suitable for patching
  • Close edge gaps
    This is the distance in pixels of the largest edge gap that you need to close. The smaller setting the better so as not to lose other details around the edge of the subject. See the 3 minute tutorial video of an example of a typical edge gap.

  • Only fill holes smaller than
    Also in pixels. The value is the smallest height or width of the areas you want filled. Any areas bigger than this in either direction don’t get filled in. 
  • Fill holes below alpha
    As a percentage. This adjusts the point that the utility fills at, so normally around 98% is considered solid. 100% is completely solid, and 0% completely transparent. The utility will smooth and anti-alias the image in edge areas to blend in beyond this value though around the edges. Mainly useful in cases where there is some genuine semi-transparency on the target image (eg a car window)  
  • Fill with
    Rescue Matte Filler will try to fill using color from the best available source.
    Usually the color information is still preserved in the frame if you are using a keyer that is in the same composition. However, sometimes the color information may be missing, for instance if your footage is pre-keyed or you just have footage with the alpha channel set already. Additionally, you might want to try different settings on this if you are experiencing jitter in your footage caused by noise affecting your key or other artefacts. 
  • Set color
    This sets the color to be used as a last resort in the Fill with setting above.

  • Feather in
    The amount the filled areas are blurred into the solid image areas next to then. NB This does not affect the outer edges of the images, the aliasing algorithm will pick up and aliased edges to remain smooth but still sharp.

  • Shrink-grow
    This expands or contracts the filled areas. For example, a value of -5 will shrink the filled areas by 5 pixels, and a value of +5 will grow the filled areas outwards by 5 pixels.

  • Decontaminate from background
    This allows you to adjust the overall tint to the patch up filled areas added to the image. This should usually be set somewhere inbetween 50% grey and your background green screen / blue screen color.
