Quick Overview

The purpose of a matte, or a mask, is to hide something in one clip so you can see something else in another clip.



Manufacturer Part Number: LJ-32

From chroma-keys, to garbage mattes, to traveling mattes, to a variety of different masks, this session gives you a lot of different ways to hide the ugly to let the beautiful shine through!

In this tutorial, we demo eleven different ways to use masks, with a lot of other effects goodies thrown in. Each of these is presented in step-by-step order, so you can use your media to create these effects on your own system. Best of all, every one of these, except one, work on Final Cut Pro 5, 6, or 7. (The exception is the chroma-key example, which is FCP 7 only.)
