Chapter 8. Working with Visual Tracks > Masking a Visual Track

Masking a Visual Track

QuickTime Player allows you to mask a visual track so that it can play within a non-rectangular shape. This feature is useful for layered tracks as well as for instances when you’d like to make a movie play within a nonrectangular shape on a Web page.

Note that this technique is different from creating a media skin for a movie. Media skins, which you can read more about later in this chapter, replace the Player interface; masks merely change what appears within the normal image area of the Player.
