    New to After Effects. Question about Masks... Help greatly appreciated.

      I have a shot of an actor running at the the camera. I have a key explosion and I want to put it behind him. I duplicated the actors clip and started on frame 1. I hit pen tool and added a mask around the actor. Everything looks good but when I hit next frame how do I start over with a new mask?; So I can animate him over the entire clip...

      Anybody know from experience or know any good tutorials? I am using a trial version of CS4. Hopefully will buy full version after Christmas. Thanks for any help.

      Merry Christmas
