Little-Known PHOTOSHOP TRICK to Animate and Mask Layers – Complete "KNOCKOUT" Guide

In this video I’m going to show you how to create and animate a “Knockout” layer using the Advance Blending options in the Layer style window.

The Knockout blend allows you to turn a layer into something similar to a mask. This type of layer punches through all the layer below it and it reveals the bottom-most layer.

Unlike masks, you can apply layer styles to these knockout layers to create more interesting effects.
