Refine Edge Matte grayed-out
on Feb 17, 2014 at 4:29:19 pm

Just finished a rough roto brush on an image sequence and want to apply Refine Edge Matte, but the feature (along with the render refine edge and fine-tune refine edge matte check boxes) are grayed-out. Is this just another fun glitch in AE CC, or have I simply missed something very basic?

Thank you all

New in AE CC is Refine Soft Matte and Refine Hard Matte. You will find these in Effects>Matte.

I know this posting was made a few month ago but maybe some other guys still need the answer:
The refine edge-options become available as soon as you make the first stroke with the refine edge tool (press and hold mouse on roto brush tool).

Thank you! I was doing a tutorial with an older video that had smooth as part of the option for matte, not refine edge. That was helpful.
