Thread: How to create a customizable rectangle mask over a solid color (VP11)?

  1. Default How to create a customizable rectangle mask over a solid color (VP11)?

    Hi,

    I am trying to create a customizable rectangle mask over a solid color without any success so far. I already tried:

    - Pan/crop / Mask => I found the anchor creation tool so clumsy that I was not able to even create a simple form!
    - Cookie cutter=> the rectangle isn't customizable to fit different dimensions I need to mask.
    - Color Gradiente / Rectangular=> the borders are inaccurate and I am needing a soft feather that seems can't be obtained.

    I would appreciate any tip.

    Thanks in advance,
    Cadu

    If you really can't cope with the masking tool, you could always cut a rectangle shape out of a solid colour using photo shop or other graphics program and save as a .png. That will give you a transparent rectangular hole to what ever dimension you want. Remember to make the solid colour the same resolution as your Vegas project.

    In version 12 Sony have included shaped masks if you feel like upgrading.

    The pan/crop mask is easy. Persevere.
    Place four anchor points to create a rough rectangle.
    Select one at a time (make sure nothing else is selected - this is very important - also make sure you are using the selection tool, not the create anchor point tool) and drag to the proper position.
    For pixel accuracy use the X/Y co-ordinates at the side. Just type in the values you want.
