Frame Mask Properties


  • Left, Right, Top and Bottom Edge: Sets the tracked borders (see also Tracking).

  • Left, Right, Top and Bottom Gradient: Sets the gradient from the edge of the frame to the edge of the object.

  • Aspect Ratio: Sets the aspect ratio (16:9, 4:3 or Custom), if required (default is Off).

  • Custom: Uses to set a custom aspect ratio (e.g. 1.85:1 or 2.39:1).

  • Tracking: Uses a Container to track the location of the actual frame mask instead of animating all tracked borders manually. Drag a Container to the drop zone (1):
