I am trying to animate a paint splatter. My idea was to take a graphic of a paint splatter, Auto Trace the layer to create a mask and animate the mask expansion over a few frames. However, adjusting the Mask Expansion levels is having no affect on the mask, neither is the feather properties.
Any idea on what the problem is? I tried searching the forum but found nothing.

The only other thing that comes to mind is this: you can't animate this mask on your splatter layer, because it's alpha channeled and nothing's going to grow. You need to paste this mask on a solid, than animate.
