Masking

Post by Kittyblue9 on 2nd January 2013, 7:30 pm

Hiya, I was wondering if there any editors out there who has this problem or knows how to resolve it?

Sometimes when I'm masking, there are black lines in the mask. Is there a way to delete those lines without deleting the whole mask? The last thing I want is to spend hours masking something and then having to redo the whole thing (all that work wasted >.<). Also, does anyone know why it happens?

thanks,
Kitty

Have you tried rendering it to see if its still there?

I've had this problem in the preview window - but when I rendered it, it was fine.

Have you added effects onto your clip you are masking?

It seems okay when I render it in wmv

Not when I am masking, but I add it at the end when I'm doing the final touches on the video.

You should probably render the mask in wmv
then add it to your timeline then render in you're usual settings

Hope this has solved your problem~

Hello. ^^ I hope you don't mind me using this thread to ask a questuon about masking. I didn't want to open up a new one!

I've currently had a lot of problems masking. I've heard that the FPS can help or hinder and I was wondering what FPS is best to mask when editing with Advent Children? A lot of the times when I mask, I usually do keyframe to keyframe when there's lots of movement, and lets say on my 30th keyframe the masking is frozen in place. Even when I move the anchors the masking itself doesn't move on the actual clip. (the preview video)

Secondly, a lot of the time theres big gaps in the background of the mask even though the mask is pefectly in line with the characters body. This all is very discouraging and makes me want to delete the project all together. ><

This happens in vegas and when rendered. I render in wmv format and usually always have my video preview set as best which I've figured out it shows the video the same as when it will be rendered where as I used to have it set as preview and lots of glitches never appeared in vegas but would when rendered. Or maybe that's just my mind playing tricks on me. xD

I think there was something else I was going to ask but I don't remember... =_=;

It depends on what version of Advent Children you're using. The DVD is standardized to 29.973 fps, but unfortunately I've found that the footage is interlaced. The most likely reason for Vegas to cause more of a 'blend' effect from the image to the mask is because it's trying to resample it, (without even being set to resample). I've had this happen before with a ton of anime and, believe me, there's no quick fix. >< If you've already done what's been said above, (disabling resample, setting to progressive, etc.,) and you're still having issues, my only suggestion without completely reprocessing the footage into something progressive is to mask it, split each frame, and then adjust the mask to the frame as it appears at the very beginning of the frame, (and be sure to delete the keyframe at the very end of said frame).

Blu-ray, on the other hand, is set at 60 fps. If you're having issues with it, try setting it to 30. If it still happens, then they REALLY went cheap on converting it and I would do the same thing as above.

Hope that helps!
