Murat OzturkScaling a mask as rotating and adding keyframes

Hi,

Is it possible scaling a mask while rotating it? If so, how can I add some keyframes as well. I want to add some key points as I am doing this operation in my composition so that I will be able to have some mask transitions done. Any help would kindly be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to do, but it sounds like you may be looking for the mask path and/or mask expansion properties.

If I understand your question, you want to expand the mask properties and add a keyframe for the mask path. Move forward in time to where you want the second keyframe, then with the mask selected hit Ctrl/Cmd + T to enter transform mode and then you can grab the transform handles and scale and rotate the mask. Hold Shift to scale uniformly, Ctrl/Cmd to scale from the center. You can also transform 2 or more vertices instead of the whole mask, just select the points and hit Ctrl/Cmd + T.

You could also animate the mask expansion property as George mentioned above.
