I was hoping for a bit of help.
I am creating a template for subtitles and I would like to lock a mask in place while the text moves and hides behind the mask.
My problem is when I create a mask over the text layer and try to animate the position the mask moves with it.
However I can not have this as a separate layer as the subtitle text needs to be layered over video clips later in premiere pro.
I hope I have explained myself enough. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
That's what mattes are for. Look it up in the help files or find a tutorial.
Thank you very much,
I carried on playing with it after I posted the thread and animated the mask path instead. but I will definitely look at the Mattes. Thank you again.
