When ever I first launch Movie Studio, the tracks have Bezier Masking activated. I never use that and don't want it. I have to un tick the box or delete the preset but it will always come back when I start the program again. It even remained after a re-install. And it remains after program resets. How do I get rid of that?
I delete the picture in picture track almost every time I use Movie Studio. But to check for sure, I just now deleted both the video track and the picture in picture track and put them both back in fresh. Bezier Masking came back active in both tracks. Also if I delete the track and then close and open the program it will be there.
This has been a real nuisance for me because if I'm not paying attention it will ruin my video. You might see from one of my previous posts all the trouble this caused me.
This issue always occurs in both tracks, P&P and Video. I really hope I find an answer. My work around is to always remember that when the program starts it is messed up and I can delete or deactivate the Bezier Masking before I do any useful work.
And also I know the procedure to reset the program. It does not help. And a full uninstall and re-install does not fix it. And yes, this is too weird. But I have a reasonable understanding of the program and computers and I am quite sure I am being accurate of my reporting of the issue.
I sure hope someone has an idea to try. Thanks for the suggestions so far. If needed I might be able to produce video of the track as I delete it and replace it. I'm sure out of ideas...
I followed your instructions exactly.... I have done this before, and I did it again just now... And I DID tick the box for the default settings. The program comes back in the original state, with the help screens etc. But Bezier Masking is still active when the program starts...!
If you would like I will make a 30 second video clip of this and share it as a link.
It was set to "Automatically open last project on startup" but just to be sure the problem was not from that I unselected that option and then unchecked Bezier Masking and then saved and quit the program. On next startup my old friend, "Bezier Masking" option was active. 😒
I just save the video as though there was a video file. A VF file. Yes, I know that is not relevant. but it seemd prudent to do that in case it saves something related to the issue. The problem persists weather I save or not.
I normally use "Power User" mode. But after I reset the program it is not in Power User mode. Both ways still present the issue. Just now I followed your suggestion for View/Window Layouts/ Default Layout. The problem persists. I also tried "save layout" from that same menu. The problem persists.
I looked for the file and followed the file path to "local/Movie Studio Platinum/17.0 but in that folder all is see is thumbnails. I think I have all the "file view" controls on for windows 10. Here is a screen shot of what I see. I don't look for files like this every day so maybe I am overlooking something.
