Animating position changes within a vector-mask layer

Although the Wave and Text layers are linked, you can still make position changes to individual layers.

1.
In the Animation palette, click the Duplicate Current Frame button to create a new frame.

2.
If necessary, select frame 2 in the Animation palette. In the Layers palette, deselect the Text layer, leaving only the Wave layer selected.

3.
Select the Move tool () in the toolbox.

4.
Hold down Shift (to constrain the movement) and drag the Wave layer in the image window, moving it down until the top of the wave image rests just above the top of the text. (As you drag, the entire Wave layer is ghosted so that you can see the position of the wave as you move it.)

5.
Click the Play button () to play the animation. The wave moves up and down inside the logo. Click the Stop button () to stop the animation.
