Hello there,
First of all i want to thank hitfilm support and the community for giving quick answers to my previous posts.
I will make a video soon that requires to crop a character out of the rest of the video. I know there is the mask tool, but it seems that it is only possible to use a rectangle shape, what i need is a tool that goes along the shape of the character.
Ive joined a youtube link below this email showing the effect im looking for.
Is it possible ? If so, can someone explain this, because ive looked in vain for tutorials concerning this technique.
Thanx in advance for your answers.

    Look here:

    The freehand mask tool is below the rectangle and ellipse tools. It's supposed to look like an old-metal-nibbed pen.
