To mask or not to mask...

Post by dingdong420 »

Is there any thoughts of when to use a mask or not to? I assume this can depend on the situation and maybe user preference, but are there certain times one should definitely use/not use masks?

See the mask section at viewtopic.php?f=5&t=27 for info on masks.

The only time you might not use a mask is if you're manually compositing the video, in all other situations you'll want a mask of some sort.

I appreciate the clarification! I've read that link and was still a lil shaky on explicitly "should I use a mask or not?". I know this isn't an absolute, but it's reassuring to have a 'soft' starting point.
