    I am just going to guess he pressed unlock above the tab. Never used Adobe effects in my life, don’t even own it, but like learning new stuff.

  15. zottypotty1 says:

    So is it possible to use layer masks? (Like in Photoshop)

  16. sahlahmin says:

    for the record, those “nodes/nubs” are called anchor points, and the lines extending off of each anchor point is called a bezier curve.

    Very well explained, love your video!

  19. zottypotty1 says:

    Is it possible to use a (for example) black and white layer whereby i key out the white areas. Then use this layer to mask the original footage in this way: where the black areas were it leaves the footage, where the (masked) white were it will be cut so it will be transparent and i can  look through to a third layer (bottom layer). In one word the black-white layer will define the mask shape but it can’t be seen at the render.
    Thank You
