Week 7 Notes


 Masks
Select the layer  -then- select the rectangle tool.
The box should have yellow lines and in the layer say mask.
If not then you have probably created a shape layer, which is wrong.

 - Where the mask is present, that part is visible.
 - You can have any number of masks per layer.
 - You can animate the mask path frame by frame.

Mask Expansion
1. Layer > New Solid
2. Then put a mask on top
The area that is effected by the mask expands or contracts based on Mask Expansion numbers.


Custom Mask
1. Use the pen tool to create your mask shape.
2. When you close the mask it makes the background out.
3. Make the background show: Double click the layer to be in layer view, so you can adjust the mask by clicking render check box.

4.  At the very end, you can feather the mask or use a negative mask expansion to get a better mask.

Ctrl+right arrow
Ctrl+left arrow
