TimeCodeVanisher does NOT wipe off any meta-data! And for sure, no effect can bring back, what’s ‘behind’ some burned-in graphic.
Please: if you use it to ‘erase’ StationBugs or Watermarks - it doesn’t wipe off copyrights.
TimeCodeVanisher, or TiCoVa, adds a selector rectangle in the Preview window; in the Inspector, you’re offered two modes, or methods:
• Clone copies some content from above or below ‘over’ the burned-in TC.
• Blur blurs the TC and the surrounding pixels into some mish-mash, which hides the TC.
For the Clone effect, just drag and adjust the selector, then ‘push’ the Clone with the Y-Position value over the unwanted parts.
Blur offers a few more controls, e.g. for tinting the blur. Or de-saturate it. Depends very much on actual content.
If you have any questions, enhancements or suggestions - post here!
TiCoVa is free to use, but not meant for resale or similar.
