I shot a video outdoors, unfortunately they flies were not sleeping, there were a few that found the field of view of my camera. Fortunately most flew in a path that are possible to cover creating masks. But there was one that flew in front of me while I was in motion. Would it be possible to remove this somehow from the video, too? Maybe with an AI tool or something? I have Sony Vegas, but I can obtain other things, too.
The problematic video segment is attached.
There is one condition that is a neccessary aspect to care about: the fames in the video should remain as is. The frame order and the number of frames should not be changed, because this is a tutorial video, and the audio and video should be in the original, perfect sync.

You can use dirt removal and/or interpolation between clean frames with animated masks to limit the repair +/- minor clean up with photoshop/after effects if required. Another way is to motion track textures/areas from clean frames/areas into target frame(s). This falls under the umbrella term of "compositing" . There is also a bird in the BG sky near the tree below the guitar between frames 32-38 , not sure if you wanted to remove
Vegas, go frame by frame (the fly is on 14 frames or so), select the fly with the mask pen tool on each frame, and shift the previous fame each time to that mask area. This way the masked area will be clean (the fly is never at the same place on adjacent frames), and the motions in that small area are not too different this way.
However mine also takes time, your method seems to be much more efficient. May I ask you to take this attachment below, it is similarly cut, but in 24mbps, and redo the correction on it? This way I will have a good quality version that I can insert into the video once I have finished editing. Please render it in 24mbps too. I don't need the bird to be removed, only the fly.
Here are the 16 frames at qp1 I-frame (near lossless), I preserved the overbrights this time (you have Y values >235 in the source for this outdoor scene)
