When I try to use a mask in a video I'm working on, instead of keying out the image (or the background if set to invert) it only fills in that area with a solid color. The masks work just fine when I use them on a still image (photo) but not with a video. All help is appreciated! Thank you in advance!
You're creating a new shape layer not a mask. Make sure the lawyer you want to mask is selected in the timeline. When you select any of the tools make sure that you do not see a stroke and fill controlles, then draw your mask.
Thank you! I hadn't selected which layer I wanted to apply my mask to, but once I did it worked just fine!
