About 50 Point Bezier Matte
A free filter for Final Cut Pro (and Final Cut Express) that lets you create a garbage matte with up to 50 points. Unlike the 4 and 8 point garbage matte filters that come with Final Cut Pro, 50 Point Bezier Matte lets you create curves between the points instead of straight lines. This allows you to easily create a mask to extract almost any element you need.


Each point can be turned on and off independently, so you only have to position the points you need, and the points can be animated using keyframes, allowing you to extract a moving object for instance.


Although I haven t personally tested it under every combination, the filter should work fine under OS9 and OSX with Final Cut Pro version 2 or greater, and in Final Cut Express (with some limitations).
Version 2 is now available. This version mainly fixes a bug that has been annoying me about the filter since I first released it - that it destroyed the existing alpha channel of the clip you apply it to. Version 2 now has the option to preserve the alpha channnel of the original clip.

I have also improved point labels a bit, which can now be colored to distinguish multiple paths. You can also display a name for the path.

Finally, I have added an option to blur the mask. Unlike applying the Mask Feather filter after the 50 Point Bezier Matte, this option does not blur the on screen controls in preview mode, so you can see exactly what the matte will look like rendered.

50 Point Bezier Matte is a completely free software. You can free download and use it as long as you like.
