Moving Masks in Adobe After Effects
on Feb 19, 2017 at 4:53:07 pm

Hi!
I've been trying to animate a mask but every time I wanted to move the position of the mask, every change/animation that I applied to the mask in the previous frames changed to that new position. How can I prevent this from happening? I've spent a couple of days trying to look for a solution, but I'm still stumped. Please help!!

Have you keyframed the Mask Path property? That's what you need to do.

Yes, I have tried key framing the mask path. The animation of the mask works when I move individual points on the mask to alter the shape. But when I want to move the whole mask to a new position, all the previous animation done on the mask moves to that new position.

Are you moving the MASK or the LAYER? It sounds like you're moving the layer.
