Content-Aware Fill as… animation?

Invisibility cloak, engage!

From the project site:

Since Photoshop introduced the content aware fill tool, it has been familiar between several artists who used it to create different concepts. All what I had seen till now are pieces working through static images, but Zach Nader made in 2012 optional features shown, a 02:10 min video using the same tool over some commercial cars in which the texts, cars and people have been replaced by the content aware’s background. I find very interesting the glitchy movement over a constant and quiet background.

    Fabulous! Thanks for showing this, John.

    I don’t understand “optional features shown.” Is this an option within Context-awware Fill, or is it the title of the video?

    [I’m not sure I get it, either. Maybe the author will chime in with an explanation of the title. –J.]

    Someone spilled water on the Predator’s car again.

    :P

    |I don’t understand “optional features shown.”

    Looks pretty cool, though if content aware fill were working properly, wouldn’t there be nothing to see?

    [Yes, and CAF implementer Dan Goldman tweets, “Next time anyone asks why AE doesn’t have CAF I will reply with this link!” –J.]

    “Looks pretty cool, though if content aware fill were working properly, wouldn’t there be nothing to see?”

    Well, yes, but there is a limit to what’s actually possible, given the data available.

    I love the shimmer effect shown here. Feels like it could be a good solution and used in its own right.
