Why are my masking points not matching?

.

Pixel Film Studios - ProFreeze Threshold - GIF - Final Cut Pro X - Animation for Masking Tutorial

.

Why is this Happening:

The Pixel Film Studios Masking tool which is in ProFreeze is designed to work in a FCPX project set at a 1920x1080 resolution. If your project or video is not at a 1920 x 1080 resolution, the masking points will not match where you are clicking. Our developers are trying to figure out how to make it work at other resolutions.

.

What is the Solution:

To change your project to a 1920 x 1080 resolutions follow these instructions

  1. With Final Cut open, choose window(Top left of screen).
  2. Select project properties.
  3. To the top right, you'll see your project resolution. Select modify.
  4. On the "Video" option, select 1080p HD

Im not seeing my subject Cut-Out, only my full shot. Did I miss a step?

.

Why is this Happening:

The mask needs to be closed for the subject to be cut out.

.

What is the Solution:

Make sure you click back on the first mask point after setting the last mask point to close the mask shape. An indication of closing the mask shape is the mask points will change color and you will see your subject cut out and separated from the background.
