Placement mask

2D TextureMask - Solid mask that has a 2D Placement

This mask is a Solid positioned with a 2D Placement. It has feather parameters that can operate on the four sides of the mask.
This mask can be used to create soft-edges when doing multiple video-projectors overlap. In this case, think to put the Gamma parameter to a realistic value such as 2,2 for example.
Note that similar and more evolved masks can be obtained by combining a Layer mask with a Uniform.


  • Placement ( 2D Placement): Placement of the solid
  • Feather Feather parameters for the four sides
  • Gamma Gamma parameter (1.0 for linear feather by default, recommended: 2.2 when defining soft-edges for video projection overlap)


Standard Presets: Outside Line, Feather 10 percents, Feather 30 percents, Feather Bottom, Feather Top and Bezier.


Misc: NEW - Parameters States.compo.


In same group: Linear mask, Radial mask, Noise mask, Polygonal mask and Gradient mask. Mentioned: 2D Placement, Layer mask and Uniform.
