I have a short intrution by inprinted date and time in a vital clip. Does anyone have experience in removing this. I have access to Adobe after effects6 or Photoshop 7. I know absolutly nothing about using after effects.

there is a 'bug' or 'dog' remover addon for virtualdub.

it does it's best to remove logo's etc without making it look too weird.

you could of course overlay a new logo over the top , or pictures of bride/groom , flowers , just something to 'hide' the annoyance.

Was the c;ip recorded on DV or miniDV ?

If so the date/time stamp can be removed as it is only recorded on one of the tape tracks, not on the picture track or on frame.

Try just switching off the time/date whilst playing back.

If it was recorded on an analog format, thats a different matter.

One way I did it in the past, but thankfully only once, was to use the motion effect within premiere to zoom in just past the time stamp.

With MSP you could use the clone tool in video paint. Don't know if there's something similar in Adobe. Is there a crop FX in your NLE?
