Animating a video mask
on Jul 9, 2013 at 4:04:25 pm

I'm working on a project for a holistic healer.

Basically I have video files that need to mask shapes which are rotating around the screen.

Whenever I try to mask them the video does not follow the shape

When I try to give it a motion tween, the video and shape become invisible in playback.

HELP, please!!

If I understand you correctly, there are different videos for each shape, and the shapes are moving around the screen? You want a video to play back in the shape of a star, let's say, and move around the screen?

Masking just "shapes" an image, video, etc. It doesn't lock their movement together. You would need to constantly update the x and y of the video so that it stays centered behind the shape mask. You might even be able to create a movieclip to hold them and move the movieclip instead so that they move together.

Do you think taking it into aftereffects and actually trimming the video to that shape be easier?

When I tried to make the video move with the shape, it disappeared.
