If I have an Image, which I shrink, to fit it as a composited TV onto a TV screen of another footage, how can I feather the edges of that shrunk image?
Is there a certain FX for it? I use AE CS4. Thanx for any suggestion!

Apply a mask to it. (If you double-click the mask tool in the toolbar, it makes a mask on the outside of your footage.) Use a negative value in the mask expansion setting for the mask. Feather the mask. More info here.

Thanx, that is what I did now. I just wondered if there was a faster way to it, e.g. dropping an effect, that is just feather/bluring the edging of a clip. But I guess, that does not exist?

If you need to do this sort of thing a lot, you could copy and paste the mask from one layer to another.
Or you could set up an animation preset that does it.

Thanx! That sounds good. Copy&Paste - no problem. Setting up an Animation Preset - not sure how to do that.
Could you enlighten me?
