Retouching tutorial with mocha Pro remove module & clean plates

October 23, 2011

A little tutorial to show how you can use the remove module for adding and taking away. When you have the laborious task of making skin ridiculously perfect, the remove tool helps by being able to take a 1 or 2 frames of photoshop clean-up and apply it to the rest of your shot. The illumination tool helps keep the original lighting intact as well.
