Chapter 9. Mask Essentials > Moving Masks Relative to the Layer Image

Moving Masks Relative to the Layer Image

You can move a mask to reveal a different part of a layer in two ways: in a Layer window, or in a Composition window.

When you move a mask in a Layer window, its relative position in the Composition window also changes (Figure 9.77 and Figure 9.78). This works well if you want to change both the part of the image revealed by the mask and the mask's position in the composition. The mask moves, but the position of the layer remains the same. Think of an iris effect at the end of a cartoon, in which the circular mask closes in on the character for a final goodbye.
