A really cool update that came out in After Effects CC 2014 is the ability to mask effects, and have different masks on different effects, without having to separate everything out using adjustment layers. That's a hard sentence even to type out, so in this video I break down how to use this new technique for masking effects in a variety of ways.
In this Adobe After Effects tutorial, learn how to use masks on effects. This new After Effects Creative Cloud technique includes the new masking effects workflow, which is a new feature in Adobe After Effects Creative Cloud. This tutorial covers adding masks to effects, animating masks that are linked to effects, adding multiple masked effects, and adding adjustment layers with multiple masked effects in After Effects CC 2015.
