A quick tutorial on how to use the various outputs from the External Matte node in Davinci Resolve 9.
In a word, the outputs are YRGB & Fill Image, NOT RGBA & Fill Image (as stated in the manual... Sorry, Alexis).

A short "rant" on where Resolve v9.1 likes to clip your image pipeline, usually unintentionally.
I have to apologize that I sound like I drank 3 cups of espresso and am being chased by a rabid badger. I'll try to slow it down for the next one.
This was done using YRGB/Rec709 settings in Resolve 9.1, not ACES.
