A "Magic Wand" masking tool?
I am working on a project where I want to do some complex masking such as masking out multiple layers of mountains from a hi-res photo to create 3D movement effects.
I remember a "Magic Wand" selection tool in a PhotoShop Elements program I had (almost 20 years ago now, I think) and I think my old Movie Edit Pro had something similar.
Currently, I have Hitfilm Pro and Vegas Pro 19 and don't see anything like that. I saw that I could just buy Photoshop Elements but thought I would ask here if anyone has any other options than paying $70 for one feature.
Thanks for any advice you have.
