In video editing, technical knowledge is just as important as creativity. That’s why it’s time to talk about the AI Smart Mask feature in VEGAS Pro 21. Designed to streamline the editing process, this intelligent feature will enhance your workflow, ensuring every frame will capture your vision in detail. In this article, we’ll explore how AI Smart Mask can assist you in your video editing process to achieve better and more visually interesting end results.

AI for object detection in video editing software

At the core of the AI Smart Mask feature is a complex AI algorithm capable of analyzing video frames to identify objects. Imagine being a documentary filmmaker who needs to anonymize subjects in a crowded scene, or a music video director who wants to apply special effects to a dancer's movements. With AI Smart Mask, these time-consuming tasks become more manageable and efficient, showcasing the feature’s versatility across various genres and projects. The days of tedious frame-by-frame adjustments are behind us!

Now, whether you're a seasoned editor or just starting out, AI masking can help you instantly generate a mask for any object with confidence levels tailored to your needs.

Flexible AI masking with Smart Mask

The confidence slider is your command center for Smart Mask, allowing you to adjust the AI's sensitivity. This means that whether your object is as prominent as a mountain or as subtle as a shadow, you have the power to command the AI to focus precisely on what matters to you.

Once the AI has identified your object, the Smart Mask feature adds a Bézier Masking plug-in to your FX chain, bringing with it a mask that's ready for action. Adjustments are straightforward, ensuring that the mask aligns with your object, no matter its shape or complexity.

Motion tracking on masks in video editing software

Motion is the heartbeat of video, and AI Smart Mask can track it with accuracy. By analyzing every movement, the tool allows the mask to adapt to the tracked object, ensuring a consistent and accurate outline across every frame. The result? A mask that moves in sync with your video.

Creating multiple masks with AI Smart Mask

Once you’ve discovered the power of Smart Mask, why would you stop at one mask? The feature understands the complexity of scenes and offers the capacity to create up to five distinct masks within a single frame. This multiplicity empowers you to manipulate various objects independently, a feat that turns a complex scene into a canvas of possibilities.

Refining AI masks with manual adjustments

Despite the AI's undeniably important role in editing, the final say is always yours. With Smart Mask’s new feature Point reduction, you can adjust the number of points generated for the Bézier Mask to make adjustments, correct masks and retrack as necessary, this way the tool becomes an extension of your creative will. This synergy between AI efficiency and human touch will guarantee that every mask meets your specific standards.

Streamlined workflow: From analysis to application

The beauty of AI Smart Mask lies in its simplicity. The Create Mask button is the final step in a process that takes you from analysis to application, integrating a Bézier mask that's ready for refinement. This smooth transition not only saves time but also allows to focus your creative energy on other aspects of your unique storytelling.
