Locking a mask

Hello again,

Is there a way of 'locking' a mask in place in AE so that you can alter the footage within the mask, i.e. move its position, resize it etc...

I'll answer your underlying question:

You should use a track matte if you want to move the layer but have the mask stay put.

Thank you!!

Yes, played around with adding a new solid and getting the footage to track that in Alpha.
I love this website.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Best
