Omur SonmezMask feathering creates hard line?
by on Dec 7, 2015 at 10:58:50 pm

Hello,

I have a shot where I have to merge two backgrounds and try to do it seamlessly. It works to an extent when I mask one part over the other, and just feather it out because they're a bit alike. But no matter how much I feather, there is always this obvious hard line in the feather that moves unnaturally.

Is there a way how I can just create a soft transition that isn't too noticeable?

Thanks in advance.

Sure-the feathering in the mask is probably picking up the edge of the image. You simply move the mask a bit.

I try to move the feathering, but the line moves along with the mask. There also isn't an edge that close. It's like a noticeable line in the middle of a soft feathering.

[Omur Sonmez] "I try to move the feathering, but the line moves along with the mask. There also isn't an edge that close. It's like a noticeable line in the middle of a soft feathering."

Can you post a couple screenshots showing your UI and the problem you're having? It would be great to see a sequence of screenshots showing each layer in the composite as well as the mask itself.

I moved the mask to make it more noticeable. But it's really only noticeable when it's in animation. I just crank up the feathering. But there's always a hard line present. It's close to the center in the first picture.

Are you referring to the red mask outlines? They won't render.

If you're talking about something else, do you see it if the comp size is set to 100% and not 50%?

It's not the red line,

I'll try to zoom in a lot more or a way that it's more noticeable.
