curved edges

Afternoon,
I'm doing a multi channel video piece for someone and I wanted to have the edges of the video curved instead of at right angles. I've been tinkering around in FCP6 and Motion 3 but haven't found a suitable way to do it. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Do you mean something like the image I attached?

I just created this in Fireworks. It can also be created in Photoshop. I can create different ones if you want something different.

What is the pixel size of your project?

Are you looking for more rounded corners, or even a circle or oval in the middle of the screen?

Why not use the Vignette filter? I have it in FCP5, I'd imagine its still in 6, but unsure.

There should be a list of filters in your manual, check it for Vignette

Yeah, that's something I'm looking for. Can I use that as an overlay?

Yes, the file is a .png with alpha.

Is this the correct size, or do you need the corners cropped in more/less?

Also what pixels size do you need?
