Thank You Colin,
It's easy when you know what to do and which effect to apply! Yes, that is the exact effect I wanted. I was making a mountain out of a mole hill! Thank you for your advice and it's something I will not forget! Jean
Ha! Yes, that's usually the case. If you tried every effect and parameter, you might have found it, but sometimes it's just easier to ask
I'm well-reknowned for advocating for the Circle effect around here; I make it do all sorts of Stupid Effect Tricks
Here I was going to mention Track Matte Keying Effect, but you dragged out Circle Effect (good going, BTW), and that was just what the OP needed.
