    editing and animating masks in  after effects ??  help needed

    djmattyz Level 1

      Hi everyone

       

      im new to the forum !!

       

      im having a lot of trouble editing masks.   

       

      when i draw a mask , and later i want to change the shape, its very hard for me, sometimes it does not want to comply with me, instead when i try to move the points, it draws a new point for a new mask.. or else it just moves the mask around the screen instead of moving the individual points of the mask.

       

      also what do the different colors mean? some masks are yellow, some pinkish.... why?

       

      finally is there a way to make the mask appear roundish, instead of straight lines?

       

       

      thanks
