    I desperately need to do some cut outs that involve people and hair in front of a green screen and so far I suck at it. I just do not know that I am smart enough to follow the steps that I watched on a couple of tutorials. Any suggestions? I have the trial version of Fluid Mask to see if it works before I buy it. I am going to spend some more time on it today. I know it is a matter of doing the steps. I would be willing to pay someone to walk through the very image that I am trying to cut out. Know any one that does this type of training? Thanks!

    Hey Michael,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I’ve only just found your post – it looks like I had my notification settings all wrong 😉

    Take it from us – EVERYBODY finds this the hardest thing to do.

    To help you we have live free training 5 days a week. Basically you join a session and everything our Fluid Mask trainer does on his screen you’ll see it on yours plus you’ll be speaking to a real person.

    No need for DVD’s when there’s the real deal. Book yourself into one of our free sessions – go to this link https://www.vertustech.com/fm_webcast.htm for more info.

    Hope this helps
