Lesson 3. Animated L-Train Logo > Creating masks with the pen tool

Creating masks with the pen tool

To animate the script L, you will create three masks that progressively reveal the letter L, as if it were being handwritten, specifying Mask Shape keyframes as you go. You'll use the pen tool and three related mask tools available in the toolbox to create these masks. You can select these tools in a number of ways, including using keyboard shortcuts, selecting them directly from the toolbox, or using key combinations that cycle through the tools. In this part of the lesson, you'll select these tools in several ways.
