Make a Mask
« on: September 10, 2016, 10:23:00 AM »
Good morning.  I wish to be able to make a custom made mask for a project that Albert Ross gave me inspiration to do.  How do I make a custom made mask for use within MoviePlus? I have drawplus, can I achieve this in that program then export as a file?  John

I normally use PhotoPlus.  Background layer empty.  Layer above has the white mask normally with feathered edges.  Export as 32 bit png to preserve transparency.

You can probably do it with DrawPlus but I find it easier with PhotoPlus.  I usually use Polygon Selection Tool to create the shape to flood with white.  Often I'm using a frame capture from my movie to guide me on the area. 

Alternatively In MVP you can use the Quickshapes with Transform to twist them into the shape you want.  Then add video FX Feather.
