beginner needs info on how to use eraser tool
on May 25, 2019 at 5:45:46 am

I have two movies which are duplicate with only small changes.
I placed them on top of each other and I want to use the Eraser tool just like in Photoshop by erasing some details from
one movie to expose the details in the layer beneath it, but every time I use Eraser its just drawing a like a Brush tool.

This ain't Photoshop. In AE, you can mask to eliminate VIDEO, which changes as often as 120 times per second.

You can use track mattes.

You can use Mocha, a third-party plugin which is incorporated into AE, and which may not be around for the ages.

Screw the eraser notion.
