    How do you invert a Keylight selection for one layer and add it to a different layer in After Effects?

      I am very inexperienced with After Effects CC (latest version). Keylight may not be the perfect solution but I'm stuck.


      What I am trying to do is:

      1. make the film melt right after an explosion happens

      2. after this, another clip will start inside the burning hole as the burn fades out

      3. not use the film burn effect in After Effects

      4. use a stock video clip has a green screen applied to the hole being created by the burn


      I figured out how to use Keylight to make the hole in the stock clip of burning film. I can't figure out how to invert it to mask out and apply it to the explosion clip so you I can start the next clip inside the burning hole.
