Sure, just make the mask a movieClip. Then you can put it on a path.
That's it....I had a graphic symbol....
thanks so much!
I know you gave me the correct answer, but I am having some trouble doing it.
I can't seem to break up the groups of layers (mask and masked, and guide and guided) to get this to work.
I made a simple file with 2 different background color options. Then I wanted to put my ball movie clip on a guide and use that as the mask.
I was unsuccessful..I tried different combination of what I enclosed here, but no go.
Would you or anyone else out there take a look at my file and see why I cannot get the mask to go on the guide layer?
Did you attempt to attach a file to your message? If so it didn't connect. Can you try again?
I did post a file...sorry it didn't go through....I did figure it out though...
I actually made the the mask a movie clip and then inside the movie clip did the animation with the mask object following a guide.
It worked perfectly..
Thank you so much for checking in. I really appreciate it!
