5 Minute Tutorial: ALL ABOUT MASKS:

Therefore in this tutorial we will work on three shots.
One is a false perspective one (Zach King) where we shoot a tripod scene and with the help of masks and clever rotoscoping create the illusion of a false perspective.
This is a workflow on how to create a giant within after effects.

As a second shot we will take a look on how to shoot different plates for a splitscreen shot, where we make a double out of our main actor/ character.

Also you will learn how to make the tipod scene look like it was filmed handheld, by adding a simple wiggle expresion to the camera-movement.

The third shot is a combination of what we have learned and brings all of this together and one step further with the combination of several shots with a greenscreen.

You will learn how to create an easy compostion that is made out of different shots that we will combine into one shot using masks.

Learn how to create masks using the pen tool and how to adjust them.
I will also give useful tips and tricks ans well as many shortcuts and hidden features within after effects to make your workflow better and your speed faster.

All visual effects are created by layering multiple visual elements on top of each other. Masks are used to define which parts of these layers are visible and how these elements are combined into the final effect.

You will learn how to animate masks with keyframes, track masks and also how to work with mask paths.

I will show and explain all mask properties in detail.

As a bonus I will give you many tips on how to set up your shots for convincing results and compositions. I will show you how to animate a handheld feel to the camera movement.
