    Mask - Tracking


    I just switched to Media Composer 5 after 8 years of FCP editing.

    I'm working on an ad where I need to track a title to my base track (V1).

    At a certain point on V1 there's a head that moves in the shot and I need to mask the title and track the mask to follow the person's head.

    I can't find the "Mask Shape" fx.

    I hope this is clear (English is my second language :)


    BTW I have ordered Avid Media Composer® for Final Cut Pro DVD and I cant wait to get it

    Use Animatte.  Draw a shape around the object you need to mask out and you can either set up Tracking (use FluidMotion) or you can keyframe the object frame by frame.
