How do I cut a circle hole to look through

The Cutout Tool is good to have, but I would like to make a perfect circle as a hole through a rectangle, as if I was using a telescope looking at something far away. Anyone out there who knows?

Hi and welcome here :slight_smile:

You can find tutorials about this in the Wiki (about masking)

Don’t forget the main concepts in Synfig are Groups, hierarchy of layers and Blend modes :wink:
