    Default Cookie cutter troubles

    Hello.

    I need cookie cutter to make a rectangle that is X long and Y high. However, they only have the default ones that don't work even when I adjust the "Size" knob.

    Any ideas on how I can cut my own lil' rectangle?

    Dont use the cc, make a mask. Select event pan / crop at the right end of the clip, at bottom left of crop window, select mask, use the ink pen tool to draw around the object, sorted.

    Ah yes, that seems like it'll work much better. OK, here's what I'm doing:
    I'm trying to cover up a part of the screen. What I tried to do is generate a solid color on the video track above and use your method to cut it up. However, I can't seem to get it right since I have to guess what I'm cutting.

    What do you suggest? If this is too confusing, I'll post screenshots.
