Hm, strange - both in cinelerra-goodguy-20190808 and 
cinelerra-goodguy-20190827 I can't see Mask's work, if I just add pre-defined shape and play with 'fade' shader. (tried various values between -100 and 100)
I tried to add effect (color invesion, brightness ..) but they apply to full track anyway.... Setting track's mixing mode at bay also changes nothing

I also tried X11 and X11-OpenGL output, and 'disable OpenGL' checkbox in mask control window... Project settings were defaults
(as  after loading single video file), but changing project's ColorFormat  from RGBA to RGBA-float, or YUVA changed nothing ...

It seems online manual a bit outdated in this regard (masking), and giant  issue about Masking improvements on bugtracker also disappeared?

My card only have OpenGL 3.3, but with disabled OpenGL (at least for masking) it shouldn't matter ?
