What is masking?

Looking for a way to show a character from the waist up? Or seeking something
that behaves like cropping? Masking allows for for an asset to be placed within
another.

 

 

 

Use the steps below to explore masking.

1. Use either the right-click mask option to multi-select two assets (one should be a maskable frame) or select the maskable frame and then asset from the mask toolbox:
