      I was wondering if there is a way to use customisable masks in Final Cut Express HD 3.5.
      by that I mean making the mask any shape you want, and being able to shape it around any or a lot of objects. I know it can be done in Adobe After Effects, but I couldn’t find it in Final Cut, and I was hoping someone could tell me if it is included in Final Cut Express…
      Thanks in Advance!

      Hmm, I downloaded it and tried it out, looks like I’ll have to get used to it, but it looks like that works for me! Thanks a lot for the help!
