Hey all. This is my first post here. I would ask the apple support but as usual they have bugs with apple IDs.
I often refer to this site so i thought i might as well sign in.

I've had this problem for a long time and on the project I am on right now it is particularly annoying.

This is on Motion 4

I am modifying a mask frame by frame to follow a shape. It needs to be precise.

However, everytime I move a control point, there is always that gray rounded rectangle which indicates the pixel location which appears somewhere near the control point blocking my view.

I don't need that info, but I need to see what i'm doing. Do you guys know of any way to turn off that feature?

Your help would be much appreciated.

You can't turn it off. What I do if it's in the way is to hold down the spacebar, which turns on the Pan tool, then drag in the Canvas so that I can access the control point that it is blocking.
