i'm trying to follow along to this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGSYg3QZcp8
i'm doing everything he says up until about 3mins30secs where i need to copy the mask over to the cracks layer, it just completley over writes my cracks- it basically deletes them then there is a massive mask (yellow) outline around the out side of the project (the grey void space) i really want to make this and i have tried looking all over the internet and can't find anything he just copy's and pastes it but when i paste it the cracks just dissappear
It sounds like the mask you are pasting in is just too big. If you do the very next step - changing the Mask mode to Add instead of Subtract, do the cracks re-appear?
but if i copy that mask over and it's a smaller size why does it go to a larger size? he copys it over and the mask that he made first is the exact mask he copied over
Are the compositions you're using the same size as the compositions he's using? Are you sure you are selecting the mask to copy properly?
