Mask and Scope Presets

Both scope presets and regular mask presets are available in this plugin package.  Scope presets are better used in stylized scenes that require more realistic compositing.  Regular mask presets have simpler stylization, featuring outline and drop shadow controls.  These presets can be used as a quick and easy effect to draw the attention of viewers.
