Are there any tutorials (After Effects CS5.5) for cloning (masking), and having them cross paths?? I have done cloning before. I just have not done it where the clones can cross paths in front of one another. Is it the same process for masking as if they did not cross paths??
Cloning and masking have different meanings in After Effects, Premiere, Photoshop and Illustrator, all different.
What exactly are you trying to accomplish?
If you're trying to make multiple copies fo the same video interact, sure, it's possible, but it's not a one-click function. If a layer is properly masked, it will or can appear in front of any other layer. Crossing paths implies using paths. Are you using paths as position properties?
Are you hoping to do this in 3D?
