Using vector masks to create animations

The rest of this lesson deals with masks, as they apply to animations. You’ll work on two separate projects with different types of masks, first vector masks and then layer masks.

First, you’ll create the effect of an ocean wave rising and falling inside the characters of the word Waves. You’ll do this by creating a vector mask to partially block the Wave layer so that the ocean appears only inside the word, and then using position changes to define the different frames of the animation.
