    Adjusting the opacity of a mask. Not the pixels, the MASK.

    ShannonNutt

      Hi there,

       

      I'm using After Effects CS3.

       

      I have a shape layer, with a mask, doing everything I want it to do, exept that I don't want the mask to completely black out the masked area. Say, only 80%, so the masked area would show through the mask at 20%, while the unmasked area is completely visible.

       

      For example, imagine a pizza, with one slice visible and the other seven being 20% visible.

       

      The mask opacity only changes the opacity of the visible pixels, which seems rather ridiculous given that I can change that with its own opacity controls.

       

      Thanks for any help you can give.
