View Full Version : Help: masking multiple elements

I'm having trouble figuring something out.

I've combined a few layers for a lower third key.

Background & Logo layers are grouped together with a text layer on top them.

How do I do an animated mask to wipe in the three compbined elements at the same time. My initial thought was to put a mask on a merge, (like I would on a pre-comp in after effects) but effect masks don't mask the layer, just the effect. I don't want to have to put a mask on each of the loaders.

Try put a matte control tool at the end of your merge and put use the masks on that.

I think...
