Default Mask video Filter

Hello,

I have learn to use mask.

But when I am in the box to create the form of the mask and adapt it, I don't see the video of the time line in background.....

So having a video or photo on V1, I introduce another video on V2, add the Mask video filter, open the tools to create the form.... but I dont see the V1.

Is there a parameter to fix so I can see backview as when creating a Title or when I use the layout to create picture in picture and placing the "front view" on the best place considering the back view.

Thanks for help

After others investigations, it seems there is no solution to work in Mask with the visibility of the timelines in background...

So, I know that I have already receive an answer about the following question but I forgot the way :

Where or to Who may I transmit this demand to obtain this feature in the following versions of Edius ?

Is there somewhere in the forum a special link where any user can go and consult the others features asked by others users.... to avoid repetition of same demands.... and why not confirm and add vote of interest on previous demands.

Thanks for help

AFAIK you should send your feature-request per PM to a GV-moderator.

In the mask filter controls you will see that the shape has "inside" and and "outside" settings. Change the value for Inside Opacity, this will make the mask shape transparent, allowing you to see through the V2 clip to whatever is on V1 below.

I agree to your feature request, would be more intuitive.

GV would not let this happen, because everybody would be able to see what features are requested in large numbers. As a result, GV would become criticizable for not implementing a feature that has been requested a hundred times.

By requesting via PM Grass Valley has the chance to actually ignore everything they don't like, for this way there is no public pressure on them.

You will see any track below in the REc monitor provided you have enabled :
Combine filter layers and track layers (for effects settings)

This can be found in the users settings.

You cannot control the position of a clip in the mask window.
Position in done in the layouter. That's why you see it in the rec window.

You can only control the position of a mask shape in the mask tool.
If you need to move the masked area with the mask enabled you have to add the transform tool beneath the mask.
