    Masking in After Effects

    Peter G. Level 1

      I am doing a lyrics video in After Effects CC and here is what I am doing. I have a background, text over the background and a oblique black mask with a hole in it to show the lyrics. So it looks like a spotlight. I want to gradually make the mask 100% transparent but I do not want the lyrics to be seen through the transparency just through the hole in the mask. How would I make that possible. Thanks.
