    Default question qwith masking with layers....

    i can make a text on the top level show the footage on the bottom layer to be seen within the text.


    heres where i have trouble. I have 3 layers, the top 2 is 2 different text on diff spots on the screen. The bottom layer is a video. How could i have it where the video on the bottom layer is displayed in the text of BOTH top layers?

    Either:

    1) Create one mask that contains both parts of your text so that you only have one overlay layer

    Or

    2) Crop the bottom of mask 2 and the top of mask 1

    Or

    Render the file with the text at the top and the video showing, then render another with text at the bottom and video showing, then import back to the project and place on seperate layers and crop the one at the top to expose the layer underneath

    Perhaps I'm missing something here, but if the texts are both on transparent backgrounds, why can't you see them both and the video clip?
    Or are they on solid backgrounds?

    Intersting. If you use a tracke matte in premiere, you lock the video associated wih the matter to the one layer, i.e all you'll ever see of the video is that exposed by the matter. I assumed this was how our OP was doing things and that the mask would 'mask' all video that wasn't inside the text.

    I guess the top text mask could have a transparent lower 50%?

    Ah, the penny has dropped, he wants the vid inside the text. I'll shut-up then
