I have a piece of text over a piece of footage and I have masked out a part of it so that it is partially hidden by an object in the footage.
When I entered Ray-traced 3D so that I could extrude the text, the masked area became "unmasked". The mask shape is still physically there, however it is not doing anything.
that is to be expected. You have topre-compose.
Unless you permanently turned off the warning you were notified that Ray-traced rendering does not support the following:
It has always been that way. As Mylenium said there are work arounds that involve putting your extruded text in a Ray-traced pre-comp and setting your main comp to standard rendering.
Thank you Rick for your detailed explanation.
I will give that a go and let you know if I come up on any problems.
