    Issues when creating a mask to apply an effect to that specific area.


      I am just starting out with adobe after effects and I am currently trying to complete a personal project. I do know how to create a mask and how to apply an effect towards that specific area however for some reason whenever I create said mask, it cuts outs the selection from the video. I provided a screenshot below.

      The first image is without finishing mask selection and the second one is after completing the selection. I want to know how I can create a mask without taking out the background. I was able to do this before but for some reason this happens now. I looked around the forums but did not find an answer so I hope that you guys can help me out, any help is appreciated!
