This may be rather difficult to explain but, I'll do my best. ( I have attached an image to better help explain my challenge)
I am trying to make a 3d hologram effect, I have ran into an issue with my masks. I am trying to create a shape, that appears to be on top of another shape, but still retain the transparency and the illusion that a mask is hiding the element below it. When I animate the shapes, I would like the mask to continue to mask the shape below it.The problem that I am runnung into is that I can't seem to retain the proper masking of my shapes when I animate the objects.
Below is an image of the desired effect I would like to achieve.
I think need a little bit of help setting up a mask for this effect.
Thanks in advance guys!
The conundrum can be solved withe the use of a track matte. Make a cicle shape or circle wipe on a solid. Scale it to match the size of the existing circle, and parent it to the existing circle.. Use it as an Alpha Matte for the square. It needs to be on the layer directly above the square.
Awesome! Thank you! I will give this a try!
