1. If you haven't already opened a new composition, press <Ctl + N> to do so.
2. Import a photo, video clip or animation by pressing <Ctl + I>.
3. Press <Ctl + I> again and choose a edge file from the edge sub folder.
4. Both files will appear in the Project window.
5. Drag both files into the Time Layout window, but make sure the edge layer is above the photo layer.
6. From the second pop up menu at the bottom of the Time Layout dialog, choose "Transfer Controls".
7. Activate the edge layer by clicking on it and choose "Multiply" from the Mode pop up menu.
8. To adjust the two layers to match the composition resolution, do the following with each of the two layers:
9. Finally you can apply a blur to the edge layer to make the edge borders smoother, if you like. Start by activating the edge layer in the Time Layout window by clicking on it. Then choose Blur | Gaussian Blur from the Effects menu and adjust the Bluriness in the Effect Controls window.
