    Alpha matte question


      Hi all.

      I am trying something for the first time.

      I want to footage to appear behind the text and only show through the text.

      I found a tutorial on adobe TV http://tv.adobe.com/watch/digital-video-cs5/making-text-masks-in-after-effects/ for alpha matte technique that suits but here's my problem.

      The surounding area around the text is white whereas it should be black like in the tutorial.

      Here's a screenshot.

      Can anyone help?
