Mask through multiple video tracks?
on Jun 20, 2018 at 10:18:17 pm

Hi,

I am trying to mask through 2 tracks.

On my first track I have some video effects generated. Below that track I have a still image. So the effect is moving in front of the still image.

But below these 2 video tracks there is an other image. I would like to create a circle mask through the 2 tracks and show the 3rd image in that mask which is the bottom track. (I need that 3rd image on the bottom as a separate track because I am also animating that, so in the masked circle there will be the bottom track animated.)

Is it something possible?

Thanks,
Joe

[Joe Wik] "Is it something possible?"
My initial thought is that an Event Mask reveals that which is directly below that Event and not two Tracks below. Interesting. . . . I’ll have a go 😉

[Joe Wik] "Is it something possible?"Hmmm? You gonna need to give more explanations
1] Upload a view of your Project Timeline

2] Just exactly what and where you've applied the FX on T1

3] Some indications of your Masking thus far.
You may have over-complicated this. Can you create a drawing of what it is you finally want?

Hi,

Yes sure, I created an image to show what I am trying to do.



The blue background is my main image. Above that I have an other track and some video effects from a media generator (represented by the white lines).

So basically I need a circle where in that circle I can animate something. I could do this with only one track and mask that main image so we can look over it and see the animated image in the circle.

But now I want to add some effects over the main image.

Hope it explains a bit more what I am trying to do.

Just wondering if this was solved as I don't yet quite understand the sequence,

Anyway, do you mean something like this where you have a object in the Mask hole of the Main Image but also you want moving items on top of the Main image.. which seems to be what you are saying.. well it does to me ☺

Hi, Yes but the ball and the arrow should be behind the circle.

So all is behind the Main Image....

If this is not what it is then maybe you can upload your Veg file so I/We can see what's what.

The moving items are only png files whereas you might be using animated gif for the items behind the Main Image?

The only animated gif I used is for the water ripples

Maybe Graham has figured it out....

[john bolton] "Maybe Graham has figured it out...."Nope. I haven’t got a ScoopyDoo.

Now where’s my Stella Artois? Watching Belgium v Tunisia. This has been, so far, a Classic World Cup of thrills, spills and chills.

Ah no ☺

So the arrow and ball should move behind the whole animated circle. And not in the circle.

Lets get this crystal clear....." So the arrow and ball should move behind the whole animated circle. And not in the circle"

Let's start at the beginning...
1) You have a MAIN IMAGE with a Masked hole in it ?
2) In the MASKED hole you have some sort of animation ?
3) You want the OTHER animations to move behind the FIRST animation.. In my case a DUCK?
4) What is the difference between .. "The Whole Animated Circle".. and NOT in the Circle?

What is the "The Whole Animated Circle".. which I assume is the LARGE HOLE... and NOT in the circle...which it the masked hole...
I guess we are missing some key explanation for myself and Graham who have not yet fathomed it out.

If you move items behind the MAIN image with the Masked hole you wont see them.. only where the MASKED hole is.

Last chance saloon...

John

John, go back to your first illustration. I think what Joe wants is what you have there, the duck and water visible through the port hole, with your other animation of the arrow and ball in front of the main (background), but when the ball crosses the port hole the ball should go behind the port hole and not be seen, only seen on the background layer.

So the order would be blue background layer, ball and arrow animation overlaying the background (middle layer), port hole animation overlaying everything else (would be the top layer)

At least that is what I get from his explanation. Sure hope I haven't made it more confusing!! maybe I should have stayed out of it.


Best Regards......George

Here is another version where the Main Image items go behind the Masked Hole Item

That is what I think he means/wants, but apparently he got hung up on something and can't reply yet.

I surely think John you have covered just about all the possible combination of guesses there are, great job.

I don't have the specific answer, but if you just copy the youtube URL and then paste it directly in your post, it should embed.


Best Regards.....George

That has tripped me up more than once, by error trying to use the 'link', and I guess I'm not doing it correctly either, or have forgotten how to, so just paste direct. Glad it is working for you now.

Best Regards.....George
