I have several layers of images/frames stacked on top of a background layer in my timeline in FCPX. I’m looking for a way to soften the edges of the images/frames layers. FXFactory does it with an effect called “soften frame” but it’s part of their Pro package that costs $399. I don’t mind paying a little for this effect but that’s way over my budget.
I’m just learning Motion, is there a way to create something like this in Motion?
Thanks for the help.

Try a mask shape and and adjust the feather parameter. Alternitify, you could add a blur to the mask shape and control the edge softness that way. These are just a few of the ways you can create a mask fo a layer and blur it.
