French term or phrase: proprietes des masques
Full sentence: Nous savons par experience que le choix du support de presentation (diapositive, transparent, retroprojecteur) ou la version installee de PowerPoint conditionnent certaines contraintes techniques dans les proprietes des masques.

Is it "filter properties"?

English translation:overlays
Explanation:
would be the best term here, in the context of graphic arts and presentation preparation. "We know from experience that the choice of the presentation medium -- slide, transparency, or rear projection -- or the installed version of PowerPoint imposes certain constraints on the properties of the overlays."

Here, the "installed version of PowerPoint" refers to the age and capabilities of the version of the program that is currently running on the computer in question, and "overlays" refers to the combined graphic effects that can be obtained by "stacking" various images in the visual field, in much the same way that the early Disney studios used multi-plane camera techniques in classic animated films such as _Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs_.

Here's what I found on Termium for "masques":

masking set s CORRECT

CONT - If your target plane does not contain an exactly rectangular array of points, they you specify the exact pattern by identifying one or more polygons which will enclose the target points which you wish to omit from the calculations. The set of polygons so defined form the masking set which masks out the target point which lie inside the polygons
