trouble with masking*

Postby carlyxjack » Thu Jun 03, 2010 10:26 am

everytime i try to mask,i get this, and i am not sure it's normal,but around every fourth anchor
i make,i get this,it's becomes irritating,because i have to delete the anchor and mostly it's impossible
to continue from the previuous anchor,because for some reason it doesn't connect,so basically i have to delete all my anchors and
start over again.
I really want to mask ,but i can't .

Please, find some deep tutorial on masking and how to mask in Vegas. This is completely normal part of the tool and it's just your lack of experience in this field >.>

If you just want to get rid of it, press alt or ctrl (forgot which) and click the anchor again - it should disappear

.. someone said something about those lines "curving" on them
and I can't remember what they did in the "options menu" to have
the "curve" shrink to a point where it was just "short-straight-lines".

.. hmm, yea, and I think it was also talked about on one of the YouTube
tuters too -- come to think of it 8-)

Turning them off is like cutting off your fingers and then crying your pictures look bad ;x

Just deactivate the "Enable snapping"... ( its left from feather ^ ) then just avoid clicking the selected dot... if you make a mistake... just click again :mrgreen:

There are a few things you can do:

When it does that, do "edit undo" or "ctrl z" so it will undo the messed up anchor point without deselecting your mask path.

Sometimes you can change it back into a regular anchor point by clicking on it once (not sure if this always works).

Also, if you want to stop and then continue your mask without starting over you can. Deselect everything, you can do right click "deselect all" or just choose the 'normal edit tool' (the one on the left right above the pen tool) and click anywhere. Then select the last point by clicking on it, choose the pen tool and continue your mask. Make sure to select just the last point.
You can also use that method to deselect your path and continue the mask from a different anchor point, the other end for ex.

You could also adjust that point that's sticking out instead of deleting it. There is a purpose for those kinds of points, they can make curves instead of ridged straight lines.

Also DISABLE SNAPPING! You won't be able to adjust anything smoothly with snapping enabled in pan/crop.

Here are screen shots with steps explaining everything I just said.

Or just click them again (might have to press Alt while at it, depends on tool in use)? |:

When ever that happens, I just click on the little box thing ( the curved one ) and it turns strait again
