Beginner AE question...Masking
on Apr 23, 2018 at 11:59:44 pm

I have a video clip small black area [IPod on a wall - no movement ] . It needs to be made transparent so a graphic can be seen.
Yes, if it had been green screened, piece of cake done in PP CS6. It wasn't done... I understand the concept, but can't pull it off.
I'm on CS 6 AE. It is just this one area....I can't seem to find a tutorial that shows masking a small square, that can be made transparent.
Can anyone recommend a tutorial that would be have help. I have tried a few times
Make comp...correct size...
bring in clip ... clip on timeline...use pen tool to make square...invert the mask
Then I can see the clip..the inside of the ipod...is not transparent...Obviously I am missing something

Best Sz
