Can anyone tell me if it is possible to reveal two separate
sections of one photo at separate times using two different symbols
on the same mask? I have tried this but the two symbols seem to be
linked to one another and move
Let me explain further, I have two people in a photo. In one
set of frames I want to reveal one of the two people from the
bottom up. In the next set of frames I want to reveal the other
person from the top down.
Is the answer to duplicate the photo to another layer and put
the mask for the 2nd person on the second layer?
you should be able to do this directly on the 'masking' layer
- they are likely to be 'moving together' since you may be motion
tweening 'both' on the same layer - this wont work, and you need to
do one at a time - it may even be better to use 'shapes' rather
than symbols in this case.
