I'm automating a mask to get rid of sweat marks on a subject and it's working fine, but when I don't need the mask, is there any way I can just turn it on and off, as you can't keyframe the add / subtract / none parameters. Or will I need to duplicate my adjusted layer every time it's needed in the clip?

Thank you!

Hi Brent,

"Keyframing"The "Mask Opacity" parameter should do the trick.

Salut.

...and don't forget that in this particular application, hold keyframes are your friend.
