How to set a Video Mask

After selecting the “Setting” option in the Video Mask menu you will be taken to a Live View for the channel you selected. Once on the Live View screen click and hold down the left mouse button and drag it across the area you want to mask. Once you have covered the area you wish to mask, release the mouse button. This area will not be visible in your video recordings. In the below picture notice the video mask feature enabled over the lower portion of the right window pane.
