I'm doing this title sequence where I want to have the lower right hand corner of the background to shatter from a "word" coming from behind it. The only problem I'm having is with the masking.
I placed the shatter effect on a duplicate of the background layer and repositioned it and scaled it to size and put that layer on top of the original background layer. I also moved the timeline of that "shatter layer" to the point where I want to have it break. However on the original background I want there to be a hole that appears when the shatter starts and the "word" comes though. Instead the inverted mask stays there the entire length of the sequence. How do I make the mask only appear when the shatter starts?
Ahh. Let me try. Thanks Todd sir.
I'mma have to do more reading into interpolation and mattes but a simple shape layer works too. You just have to position it at the right place.
