i've been trying to figure this one out for hourrrrrs now, feel like i'm banging my head against a wall. EXTREMELY frustrated... hope someone can give me a clue.
i've created a black & white matte.
i've put the matte on video 2.
i have some source video i've placed on video 1.
i scale the source video to 40% of its normal size, the size i want it to be.
i apply a track matte effect to video 1, specifying video 2 as the matte, and choose source luma.
the source video is masked, but for some godforsaken reason, p.p. insists on resizing the source footage to its original size or changing the size of the track matte. >:( and when i try to scale it down again, it scales the track matte along with it. >:(((
i don't want the source video to be changed, i want it EXACTLY as i had it, and i want the mask to be left EXACTLY as i had it, so that EXACTLY the areas of the source footage i want are masked, not something else.
