mask fill with same color as object
on May 7, 2011 at 2:35:12 am

hopefully this is easy. I am trying to block out a sports emblem on a hat. I have created a mask with the pen tool (invert) and was able to animate the mask to follow the the emblem. My question is how do I fill that empty space within the mask with same color as the rest of the hat?

Hi there,

To fill a masked area with a specified color. Set the Mask Mode to "none" then apply the "Fill" effect. Choose the Mask name in the "Fill Mask" menu and then use the eyedropper to sample the color from the hat. Voila, you're done! :-)

Hope this helps! :-)

cheers,

Angie
