Auto Mask

Postby NNN636980637400917811 » Fri Jan 17, 2020 6:40 pm

I would open a ticket but I have another issue already open with C 1 20 going on over a month now so I know the techs are inundated. Anyone else have an issue with 'AutoMask' in Layers using the Draw Mask? I 'paint' a subject against a brighter background and over flow the edges, the AutoMask feature, which is checked is not snapping the fill to the edges of the subject. It seems very straight forward in order to not mess it up, but who knows. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thank you,

Tom

In case you are not familiar with how this works...

In Capture One, the auto masking works by only snapping to the edge after you make the brush stroke. Also when you use auto masking, the brush will show you three circles (unless you have hardness at 100%). You need to be sure to brush so that the edge is always between the inner circle and the middle circle. I find it easiest with a comparatively hard brush and not too small.

But perhaps you knew all that already.

Thanks Ian, I was applying the brush strokes but I will try your suggestion below regarding the middle and inner circle. Do any of the brush setting matter, i.e. other than making sure 'auto mask' is selected?

I would use opacity and flow at 100% for auto masking. Other than that, I think it’s a matter of practice and experimenting.
