Create a square solid in SQUARE PIXELS. Square pixels are important here.
Double-click on the solid to put it in its own footage window.
Double-click on the Elliptical Mask tool to create a perfect circle mask.
In the timeline, duplicate the mask you just made, Command-d (mac), and set the original mask's mode to OFF
In the timeline, highlight the newly-duplicated mask. Click on the color swatch next to the mask and change the mask's color to something that will contrast with the original mask color for ease of identification, and highlight the mask again if necessary to see all the new mask's vertices in the footage window
