pardon my short term memory loss, but, I am revisiting some old material and i wish to create a letterbox mask to go over some video clips.
I have done this before using photoshop to create a graphics layer, but for some reason I cannot eliminate white in middle. I'm using 8.2.2
and I tryed boris but that seemed clunky.
any tips would not be forgotten for at least a few hours.
thanks

In PhotoShop, create a new document at your desired resolution in RGB. Fill the whole image with black.
Now in the Channel Palette, create a new channel with the little button at the bottom. Fill the whole new alpha channel with white, and then create a mask at the 16:9 area, and fill that with black. Save file e.g. as Pict with Alpha channel at 32 bit. Import this in Media 100, place it on a graphics track and you are done.

Actually, Boris is the perfect way to do it. If your titles don't need rendering: just makes one title the length of your program and in Boris make a black layer as the top bar and another black color layer as the bottom bar.

I do the same thing.

I create two black color layers in boris.

Crop one to be the top black bar... and one to be the bottom black bar.

Fully functional letterbox MASK not waiting... no rendering!
