Hi all. I'm relatively new to working with CS3, and at this
point I'm trying to replicate other tutorials out there so that I
can get a basic understanding of CS3. The piece I'm working on now
is using masking on a text layer to show a "highlight" effect.
I've run through the tutorial many times verifying I have the
same settings and "design" as the person presenting, and while the
mask does work when I'm in CS3, if I test the movie, the only thing
I see is the mask layer moving on top of the text, and not the way
it plays CS3.
Has anyone experienced what I'm trying to describe, and what
stupid thing am I doing that is causing this?
If you see the mask, it is not a mask layer. If you mean you
see the effect of the mask, and it is masking a textfield, chances
are it is a dynamic textfield. Either change it to a static
textfield or embed the font in it.
