Frequently Asked Questions

.

.

Why is the background animation removed when I press "Clear"?

.

What you are seeing when you first apply the preset is an example of how the plugin should be used on your media. You will need to clear the original points and then place new ones, then playback the clip and you will see the animation occur once more.

.

.

Why are my masking points not aligning with my cursor?

.

In order for your masking points to be placed where your cursor is located, you must first make sure that you are working in a 1920 x 1080p project as that will be the resolution in which this plugin and tool were designed for. If the points are still not aligning you must also make sure that your media will also be in 1080p resolution.

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.
