    Masking a Solid Layer with an Effect


      Should be easy, you would think.


      I have a solid layer (white) with a radio waves effect applied to it.  I've got the effect dialed in and it's what I want, but I want to mask off just a triangular portion of this layer, creating a beam shape (not eminating in 360 degrees.)


      But my mask has no effect on the effect, if you know what I mean.  I've tried inverting the mask and changing the mask modes but nothing works.


      Isn't there a way of masking a shape layer with an effect on it?
