Unable to animate masks in AE CS6
on Oct 26, 2012 at 12:54:08 pm

I've looked all over to see if anyone has had a similar problem but nothing's come up so I might be missing something really simple.

I have a number of masks on a layer which I want to change the shape of over time. I can edit the shape of the mask as much as I like but as soon as I click on the stopwatch to make a key frame the yellow vertices dim and cannot be adjusted. When I delete the keyframes it returns to normal.

This only started happening when I upgraded to CS6

Thanks in advance,

Lizzie

Make Sure you select the layer not the mask while moving the Vertices.
