Is there a way to sort sequences in the project by panel by the creation date of the clip from which each derives. That is, I import a bunch of clips, create subclips from them as sequences (giving th

Any way to use Refine Matte on a Track Matte?
by mike cantor 9 years ago
Hi, I've created a Luma track matte by subtracting my composition from a clean shot and thresholding it. This works great but the edges are sharp. Refine Matte has worked great for me in the past when
