Just getting to grips with alpha masking and come up against a problem I can't seem to find an answer for - I'm probably just searching the wrong terminology or something but hoping someone here can set me on the right path!
I have a logo which I want to be revealed by an animated mask which is tracking the movement of some orange discs which pass in front of the logo's position. I have the animated mask in a pre comp.
The problem I have is that while the alpha mask works, it also seems to be overlaying itself so that the graphic comes out a solid black when revealed. To demonstrate, I've attached three screen grabs:
Logo shown without mask
Mask layer shown in progress without matte applied
Composition shown with alpha matte applied to the graphic layer
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated - I've been back over my tutorials and just can't seem to spot what I'm missing!
Thanks for your time
Got there in the end - little confusion over the layer ordering was all it was. Thanks for the reply anyway!
No problem! Layer ordering is often the case with newcomers and track mattes, so you're not alone!
