How to Remove Text Without Blur in a Video

To remove text from a video without causing blurring, you can use two different methods: using video software or video inpainting.

We’ll discuss each method in detail:

Method 1: Using Video Editing Software

Step #1: Create a Duplicate Background

Import your video into a professional video editing software such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, or DaVinci Resolve. Create a duplicate layer of the video on a new track, ensuring that the text appears on the top layer.

Step #2: Create a Mask

Use the masking tool to create a mask around the text you want to remove. This can be done using shapes or by manually drawing a mask around the text. The purpose of this mask is to isolate the text from the rest of the video.

Step #3: Track and Keyframe

Apply motion tracking to the mask you created in the previous step. This allows the mask to move with the text throughout the video. Adjust the keyframes as needed to ensure accurate tracking.

Step #4: Restore Background

Once the mask is accurately tracking the text, restore the background in the masked area. You can do this by duplicating nearby background elements, cloning or healing tools, or using content-aware fill features available in some software.

Step #5: Fine-tune

Adjust the restored background to blend seamlessly with the surrounding video, ensuring that there are no visible inconsistencies - you may need to color correct, match grain patterns, or apply additional effects.

Method 2: Using Video Inpainting

Step #1: Identify The Video Frame(s) That Contain The Text You Want To Remove

Watch the video and note down the timestamps or frame numbers where the text appears. This will help you locate the specific frames later.

Step #2: Install a Video Inpainting Software or Library

Some popular options include OpenCV, Adobe After Effects, and DeepFlow-based methods. Research and select the tool that best suits your requirements and familiarity with the software.

Step #3 Import The Video

Launch the software and look for an option to import video files. It is usually located in the file menu or toolbar. Click on Import, navigate to the location where your video file is stored, and import the file.

Step #4: Set Up The Inpainting Parameters

Depending on the tool you're using, there may be various parameters to configure. These parameters control the inpainting algorithm, patch size, fill region, and other settings. Refer to the software documentation or user interface to locate the inpainting parameters. Adjust them according to your preferences and the desired output.

Step #5: Choose The Frame(s) That Contain The Text You Want To Remove

Use the timestamps or frame numbers you noted earlier to locate the specific frames within the video. Most video inpainting software allows you to navigate through the video frames using a timeline or slider. Move to the desired frames that contain the text you wish to remove.

Step #6: Apply The Inpainting Algorithm to the Selected Frames

This process may vary depending on the software you're using, but it typically involves marking the text regions you want to remove. Some software offers manual selection tools, allowing you to draw or highlight the text regions directly on the frames. Others may have automatic text detection capabilities that can identify and select the text regions for you. Follow the instructions provided by the software to mark the text regions accurately and start the inpainting algorithm to remove the text.
