"Render and Import Mask" button in Magic Mask

PostTue Nov 22, 2022 11:23 pm

A suggestion, since the (excellent) masks created by Magic Mask are so fragile: what if there were a button or command (accessible from the 3-dot menu) in the Magic Mask window called "Render and Import Mask" that would render the mask to a single B&W video file and import it into the project. That way we could drag it in as a matte and not have to worry about whether we'd lost the tracking info or not!

Totally agree on this, it would be great if there was an option to create a clip from the mask.

This would also allow easy "fixing" of the mask, eg I'm seeing random frames being totally dropped by the mask (so the mask "disappers" for single frames and just shows a "blank"). Also some times the mask picks up strange artefacts. If the mask was generated as a clip, then it would be easy to fix these kinds of problems, eg the "missed" frame would be really simple to fix with the frame replacement tool, now there is no way to fix that problem, as re-tracking just leaves the same frame empty again..
