vincent fournetAE : How to contain an animated object in an invisible frame?

Hello,

First of all hello & please forgive me for my poor english as it's not my native language.

So i would like to see only the part of an object that would be contained in an invisible frame.

For example if i zoom and pan in a picture i don't want it to expand behond that "frontier". The issue is that i don't know how to define this limit :)

Thanks a lot for your help !

Draw your frame on a Shape layer [link] placed directly above the layer you want to confine, then tell your image layer to use the shape layer as an alpha track matte [link].
