⚠️ (Bug Alert!) Resize the mask size via the video preview

In Build 326 of VEGAS Pro 20. Bézier Masking is quite buggy in addition to creating frames by itself when dragging the mouse on the animation timeline. It is also no longer possible to resize the mask size via the video preview, only via the plugin's settings window.

....and - is there anything in the announcement for build 402/403 that the bug is fixed?
Maybe it is simply not high on the priority list.

Given the promotion around smart mask which is tied to bezier mask and multiple other fixes to bezier masks it's a good question what was fixed.

I am not sure if I'm just missing something but having trouble figuring out how to modify a somewhat faulty smart mask and not getting anywhere. At first I was stymied by not being able to see any update in the preview window as the "Prefer GDI compatibility setting" I had changed in NVIDIA Control Panel to compatible somehow got reset.

I changed that again and while it let me see what smart mask was doing I still don't really see how to control the shape and modify points which I need to do if the subject moves at all (and the initial mask wasn't perfect and mistook part of the subject for the background).

@RogerS I've had different results from this Smart mask, the mask of a woman on a green screen was crap, loads of green could be seen but a woman stood with a multitude of things behind her got a good mask 🤷‍♂️

But I do think there's some false advertising going on, the video advert implies that this mask would cut out these dancers giving a moving mask, but Smart mask gives one single frame mask & would have to be manually adjusted, there isn't even a way that each frame can be masked and added to create a run of masks,

If they know more perhaps they'd like to make a tutorial as to how

I have the same problem. I thought it was just me doing something wrong. You and Gid are a lot more proficient in Vegas than I am so that confirms to me that it is not my PC causing this situation. I also would like to see a video tutorial on how they used smart mask on those dancers.
