    Opening door masking After Effects

    Haugen Level 1

      I open a door, and inside I want to put an image. When opening the door I want the image inside to reveal as I open the door. But I can't figure out the masking and layers in After Effects. Can't find any tutorials that'll fit on Youtube. I want the mask to follow the edge of the door, so the image inside slowly reveals. But I don't know how to put the mask. No matter how I do it, the mask turns out black. I started doing this in FCPX. The image inside is keyed(blue screen), so there's only a tiny person inside. I have now two clips. One where I open the door without anyone inside, and the same clip with the person inside.

      Can anyone help me?


      Any suggestions?
