Lewis CostinMasking an effect

Hi. I am trying to limit Keylight to a section of my footage (my greenscreen) and I can't find a way to use a simple mask to do this.

Is there a way of using a mask to apply Keylight to only my masked area?

Thanks.

Hi Lewis --

-- fairly new to this app myself ( so this might not work ) but have you tried opening an adjustment layer and applying mask and keylight to that ...


if that does not do the trick I think I would try pre-comping the job so far / making a copy / and applying keylight and mask to top copy ..


-- will be interesting to see what the others make of it

Yep, that's what I would do.

You can just create a mask on the footage, or animate a garbage mask if necessary. Within Keylight is the option to select that mask as an Inside or Outside mask.
