On his Blog, Tony LaTorre is doing a series of reviews where he presents various After Effects scripts that he finds useful for his workflows.
This week he started with a review of our little helper CopyMask2Layer.
When you copy a mask from one layer to another it often changes its position. With CopyMask2Layer you can copy masks while keeping them perfectly in place - even if the layers are moving and if the mask path is keyframed.
Change a few keyframes all others change automagically
Did you ever needed to change a mask or other property with hundreds of keyframes? With KeyTweak, you simply change a few keyframes and all others change automatically "accordingly". Sounds like magic? Go ahead and see yourself...
With Tracker2Mask you can track the movement of masks using the After Effects point tracker. Just track a point and Tracker2Mask moves the entire mask accordingly. You can also track several points for a tracker-assisted rotoscoping workflow.
In this guru lesson you learn how to use masks and adjustment layers. We give the guru a dark face and add a vignette to the clip to make it look more interesting. We also cover the per point mask feather available in After Effects CS6 and newer versions.
