    Setting moving masks on imported composition from Photoshop

    tareyza

      Hey guys, I have a question about masks.

       

      So I imported an fairly simple image from Photoshop containing transparency as a composition in AE. I wanted to apply a moving mask to it. However, the imported composition is significantly smaller in pixels than the main composition I am working on. When I apply the mask, I discovered that it was applying to the composition as if it was the same size as my main composition, and the mask didn't apply to where the imported composition was physically. (The mask is a rectangular layer that is animated.) Is there a way for me to expand the imported composition to the dimensions of the main composition by keeping original size, position, and orientation by increasing the transparent area to the size of my main composition, or is there another way to solve this problem? Thanks!
