A Simple UI for Complex Work

Spot Clone Tracker’s user interface makes borrowing pixels from other areas of your shot fast and easy. Define the spot to be cleaned up and the source of the clone using the graphical overlay.


User Interface

Spot Clone Tracker’s user interface is simple, but packed with the tools you need. Scale the spot, adjust the feather, and even change the shape using four control points. You can also independently adjust the position, scale, and even rotation of the Clone From region.

Rock Solid Tracking

Spot Clone’s powerful tracker is fast and accurate. You can track just the target region or both the target and the source.

Multiple Cloning Methods

Different challenges require different approaches, and Spot Clone Tracker takes that into account with 6 different cloning/repair methods. For example, “Repair” works like a healing brush, replacing texture and color, and matching lighting. “Clone” copies pixels exactly, with no lighting match. You can even dial in the specifics that best suit your shot by manually adjusting how closely to match colors and texture.

Render on Transparent

Spot Clone Tracker can often do the job all by itself, but if you want to use its results with further compositing and matting, there’s a Render On Transparent option.

Noises On

As a finishing touch, you can automatically add noise to the cloned spot to create an even better/more professional composite.

GPU Acceleration

Spot Clone Tracker’s engine is GPU accelerated, giving you great results at incredible speeds.
