Hi to all, I'm new in video post production.
I'd like to have something like the image here:



black background, and smaller clip with rounded corners. with the inspector I have done almost everything (transformation and crop) but not the rounded corners.

Can you help?
Thanks!!

Hi Andera !

You can convert Power Windows to Bezier Curves in Davinci Resolve 12/14 - maybe the way to go ?

Best,
Ole

This is probably one of those things where I find it easier to just make a matte overlay and use it over and over again inside the project. Inside Fusion or Photoshop or AE....wherever. Create your frame inside a 1920 x 1080 (or what ever you are working in) frame size. put black around the rest of the frame, with a matte cutout in the shape you want. You may want to create the edges with a slight blur, or some other imperfections. Then when you bring it into Resolve, you can drop it onto a new track, adjust the shot underneath to fit the hole and move on.

Doing it with a window might work, but you may find getting the corners even is a bit difficult, and with all the fussing about with bezier handles, it would be quicker to make a keyable element and move on.

What Glen said. In fact with a bit of searching you can probably already find such a matte with an alpha key (you forgot to mention that part, Glen 😉 )

More fun to make it yourself. If you want to learn how to use these things...don't be afraid to get your hands dirty:)

(I know from reading your other posts, thats exactly what you are doing)

Yep. I figure in her situation since she's first starting she doesn't need to be learning multiple programs at once!
