Hm, strange - both in cinelerra-goodguy-20190808 and

None of the above is explainable.  We do not know how to diagnose the
problems you see.  Not to be insulting, but did you add an empty video
track below the main video track and add the Gradient plugin to that
track?  That makes it so you can see the mask area.  So if you look at the
following demo, can you point out where your masking might be going wrong?

Yes, the current manual Masking is totally wrong and Andrea has
incorporated the new stuff into the Latex version which is not yet
available.  The below has the new Masking documentation temporarily:


The Bugtracker is still there as issue #2, but it is Closed so that is why
you might not see it. You probably have "Hide Status" set to "Closed".  But
at the top right hand corner of the Bugtracker, you can type in the number
"2" for the issue to see it all.
