Moving objects to the foreground and background - Davinci Resolve

Been trying to mask the legs to move to the foreground and have the vfx behind them, but it’s not working. I used the power windows to do the mask.

Did this need to be done in green screen or what am I missing to achieve this? Thanks

Hey Rick!

Have you tried out the magic mask yet? It seems like it would be a good fit for what you are wanting to accomplish in Davinici Resolve. Here is a video demonstrating a few roto shots like the example you sent.

We also covered a really cool AI driven tool that makes roto work easier that I would also recommend trying out if you haven’t already.


I hope that is helpful!


No I haven’t, but will try it out. I don’t know why this doesn’t work though. Thanks for the response!

Nah, it’s not working. I guess it has to do with layers? I’ll have to go another route as I look into it. or ask VFX expert how to properly do it.
