Step 1: Begin by importing your video clip into the timeline. Drag the clip into the timeline area to get started.

Step 2: Duplicate your clip. Press and hold the Alt key while dragging the clip above to create a duplicate layer.

Step 3: Now, find a suitable replacement area within your video. This should be a part of the footage that matches the background or surrounding elements seamlessly.

Step 4: Navigate to the Opacity tab and select the Pen Tool.

Step 5: Using the Pen Tool, create a mask around the area you want to remove. Ensure that the mask is large enough to cover the object completely.

Step 6: Now, move this shape over the top of the object. You can adjust the position as needed to cover it completely.

Step 7: To blend the mask seamlessly, increase the mask feather. This will help it blend in with the surrounding elements of your video.

Step 8: Nest both clips together. Right-click on the clips, select Nest, and give it a name to organise your project effectively.

Step 9: With the object removed, you can now proceed with colour grading and adding additional effects to enhance your video further.
