Beginner problem - mask?
on Dec 6, 2018 at 12:52:47 pm

Hi, i'm a beginner but cant for the life of me work out how to solve this (probably easy) problem. I'm trying to move the white box that is next to the logo on this animation. However, I cant select it of find it anywhere within the layers (it is from a template). Any ideas?

I'd look at the template's instructions. Templates allow you to modify only certain things easily. But we don't know if this is something you can modify easily.

They're typically REALLY complicated, there is no set of organizational principles used to build them, and if you want to go beyond the easy modifications they allow you're in for a lot of learning and a lot of work.

How do you know there is a white box? I can't tell with all the white. And if you are talking about the text moving out from what looks like a white box, it may be the text is in a comp the height and width of the text itself in another precomp. I can't see the layers so it's really hard to say what's going on. What's the timeline look like?
