Cant change zoom whilst masking?
on Apr 28, 2009 at 6:26:30 am

Ive done this a million times now:

When im doing a mask, often i want to zoom in to see more detail to mask around intricate areas, but when i zoom, the mask will finish then and there, and i cant undo this error, so i have to start again.

Is there no way around this?

Are you saying the mask is disappearing?

No not disappearing, but finishing. Say if I am masking around a person, I will start at the top of the head, then get to the feet and try and zoom, the mask will just finish and connect from the feet to the head.

Got it. Use the short cut keys to zoom instead. Hit Command (apple) and the Plus key to zoom in. Command and Minus key to zoom out. Hold down the space bar to move around and your mask wont close. Best of luck.
