    I need masking help

    Nervous Juice

      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?
