Hallo Everybody,

this is something I haven't done in a while: I have to create a mask for a layer, that is not straight round or regular, but jagged and random line.
In Photoshop I know how to make certain parts of the mask irregular with some random brushes.
But in AE I only know how to draw mask with the Pen Tool, which is a regular line/round which can be only feathered in a regular and equal way.
Any ideas or suggestions?

thanx a lot!

Can you create your mask, then add the effect Stylize > Roughen Edges
