Hiya, hoping someone can help me.
Basically, I need to create a mask that stops text from going off a frame:
I need this mask to go over numerous layers, but for some reason when I put the mask on, it follows the items which is becoming very frustrating!!
If someone can help I shall greatly appreciate it.
This seems to just show how to create a mask that moves with the layers.
Is there a way I can mask using a static mask that effects multiple layers?
Sorry if this is covered, I can't seem to find it.
Select all the layers you want the mask and pre-compose. Put your track matte above the pre-comp.
Another option that may work is to put your mask layer at the bottom and use the toggle preserve transparency switch in the timeline. The switch is just to the right of blend modes. This is kind of like layer clipping in Photoshop and works for some projects.
