Hi all,  

I have one mask, (Mask A) that moves a little bit... and I have Mask B, and I want Mask B to move exactly like Mask A does.

 

Is there a way to connect them so they move around in sync?

 

Thanks!

Depending on what you're doing, duplicating the layer and using one mask on each may do the job.  

 

Duplicate the layer, parent one layer to the other, then use transform tools like Position and Rotation to move the first (parent) mask.  The second (child) layer will follow, as will it's mask.

 

If the masks are being used to rotoscope or seperate elements of the layer, you may then need to use them as Track Mattes on non-moving duplicates of the main layer.

Thanks for that.

 

I will try your advice:
