What is Smart Trace?
The purpose of smart trace is to use the ML mask as a starting ‘Shape’ to work with when editing the mask.
When the user presses the “Smart Trace” button, an outline is created around what the ML assumes to be the object/product (usually this is what the machine learning has masked out already) Kind of like the image above.
Then, from this, the user can either keep the outline as-is and use it with either the “fill, erase, cut out” tools in the shape option.
Or to modify the outline, the user can:
- Drag any of the points around to move it
- Click anywhere on the screen to add a point
- Click any point already made to remove/delete it
Note that only one shape at a time can be applied. To create a separate shape you would first have to apply the current shape being edited. (This will be different when the multi polygon mask feature is implemented)
