When it comes to masking or rotoscoping in the Flame products, the Gmask Tracer is a very powerful option that allows you to isolate a part of your image.

Now when you are in the process of masking your image, there are a number of views you can use to view your progress.

With Flame 2019, there is another viewer you can use that is called the “Matte Viewer”.

This is a Matchbox shader that provides some additional overlay functionality when working with masks and mattes.

This tool can also be used in Action to overlay the mattes within a 3D composite.
