Drawing lines, boards, circles, edges ...

Hey everybody,
For a project, i need to frame a text paragraph and put objets inside squares with visible frames. I am sure there is a simple way to to do it but i can't figure out since im beginning with this software.
Thanx a lot in advance for your replies !


  • Thanx that is the first technique ive tried, the problem is when i create the plane and fill it with color, then i use the mask, but the mask does not cut the inside, it keeps it visible and cut what is outside of the mask ...
    Could you give more details about your technique please ?

    Change the mask mode to Subtract.
  • Thanx for the link, now i got the solution, i just had to use the inverted function to get what i want !
  • I've tried to do this but choosing subtract makes the whole plane disappear.

    @THX1139 the first mask on a Hitfilm layer needs to be an ADD blend (subsequent masks can use other blends). 

    In your case mask the area you want subtracted in an ADD mode, then, in the mask controls check "Invert."

  • Thanks, Triem ^_^
