While a camera flash can help set a scene's mood, flashes can also draw attention away from the main focus of a scene. Use the Flash Remover Pro effect to remove camera flashes from live event footage such as weddings and social events.

Steps to use Flash Remover Pro
- Apply the Flash Remover Pro effect to a scene in your video editor.
- In the Flash Remover Pro settings, adjust the Sensitivity value to determine how Flash Remover Pro interprets sudden changes in brightness as a flash. A greater value increases Flash Remover Pro's sensitivity to bright areas.
Note: To ensure objects and lighting in a scene are not mistaken for a camera flash, preview the video as you adjust the Sensitivity value. For example, if you set the sensitivity to 100 and the video suddenly pans to a white dress, Flash Remover Pro may mistake the white dress for a flash. In that case, reduce the sensitivity until Flash Remover Pro ignores the frames with the white dress.
- Adjust the Max Frames value to determine the number of consecutive frames that will be fixed. For example, if a flash appears on three consecutive frames and the Max Frames value is 2, Flash Remover Pro removes only the two frames that have the strongest flash.
- When Flash Remover Pro detects frames with a flash, Flash Remover Pro replaces those frames with frames that it replicates from before and after the flash.
- Higher Max Frames values may cause the video to stutter. Use the lowest value that is needed to remove flashes and maintain a smooth video.
- Mark the Test mode checkbox to view an overlay on frames where Flash Remover Pro detects a flash, then play the video to see those frames.
A red X overlay identifies frames that will be replaced to remove a flash.
A blue X identifies frames where Flash Remover Pro detects a flash but will not replace the frame because the Max Frames setting is too low. To fix frames that have a blue X, increase the value in the Max Frames setting.
