Re: Crack Layer in Half? by Matt Ratcliffe on Nov 25, 2010 at 5:29:48 am
If I was going to do a basic crack through the middle, I would split the layer at the point of the animation is needed, use the pen tool to draw a mask all around the top (or side) half with a jaggered edge through the middle - this would leave a finished half designed to your liking. Then duplicate the layer and switch the mask from Add to Subtract to invert the mask, giving u the second half. Now you can easily transform the positions of each layers up or down, side to side, or whatever.
