Roughen mask edges only

Hi,

Any way to roughen mask edges only? I have applied a mask to a part of a alpha image but when I apply the roughen edge effect, it affects all the edges in the alpha image.

Best,
Stig

Nope--Roughen Edges isn't selective. You would have to isolate the part you want to roughen. I'd duplicate the layer in question, mask off the part I wanted and apply the effect.

Another solution would be to cut the mask path and use it to make a shape layer with no stroke and a solid/100% opacity color. Put it right above the original layer, and parent the shape layer to your original layer that had the mask, and then select Alpha Matte in the original layer's TrkMat settings. That should give you the same "mask" but give it the ability to take the Roughen Edges effect.
