Animating Logo - need layer to appear from mask, but mask keeps moving
on Jul 13, 2016 at 3:59:47 pm

Hello,

I have a logo I'm trying to animate that involves 3 letters.

I want the 2nd letter to appear like its popping out of the first letter. If I put a mask on the 2nd layer, the mask will just move as I try to animate the letter. I want the mask to stay in the same place so I can animate the letter out of that mask, making it look like its appearing out of thin air.

I think I might have to use an adjustment layer? Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Thank You!!!!

I'm not sure I'm clear on what you're trying to do, but consider using a masked solid as a track matte instead of a mask on the layer you're animating.

Thank you, Track Matte was the way to go.
