Bezier handles on power windows

PostSat Oct 23, 2021 1:21 pm

Using the pen tool to create windows, I can't figure out how to adjust the handles in resolve. Is there a way to do so instead of creating massive arcs? Kinda like the way you can hold option in Illustrator to redirect the path?

You can extend or contract the handles by click-dragging. On Mac, you can extend or bend one handle alone by using Option-Click (I think it's Alt-Click on Windows). I routinely create a circle and then use Convert to Bezier, and then change the shape as I need it for faces and other objects.

Thanks guys, I’ll give it another go. But from my trial an error I couldn’t get it to work.
I’m wanting to create very specific masks that fit around objects. Will give it another play.
