Add more to mask
on Sep 5, 2018 at 7:47:27 pm

Im not sure what this is called but I am trying to add some more to the object that is masked

I want a few solid dots to be shown past the mask. so its not a perfect circle.
I can add a bunch a maskes around what I want to add but I was wondering if there is a better way to do this?
Thanks

How are you making the collection of dots that you're masking?

Piece o' cake:
  • Make sure the selection tool is active
  • Highlight the mask property for the layer
  • Select a mask vertex & move it around to taste

For some reason I thought there was a way to do it without adding to the mask. thanks

I guess I don't understand what you mean by adding to the mask. The steps above only alter an existing mask vertex.
