Hello and thank you in advance for your time. I am looking to center this text in an Ae template for a video I am editing. In the photo the word Twilight is behind some sort of mask, it keyframes up and out from behind this for the template, but I would like to move the whole thing down so it is in the center of the frame. I can move the text but I'm unsure of how to move what I think is a mask, to lover the text and the animation. Does anyone have any advice? Thank you.

The simplest solution would be to pre-compose both layers and then adjust the position. You will have to reveal the shy layers before you do that. 

 

Another option would be to add a Null and parent both layers to the null, then move the null.

 

If I could see all the modified properties of all layers, I could give you a couple of other suggestions. Just turn off Hide Shy Layers, select all layers and press the U key twice and post another screenshot, and we can offer some other suggestions.

Start by toggling off the shy guy icon to reveal all other layers. And the layers use mattes as indicated by the additional icons. You may want to read the online help on soem basics.

Thank you! This helped, I wasn't aware of tracking mattes and traveling mattes.
