Hello, I'm using AE CC and trying to figure out how to control the display of my animated mask? For example, I have a video file where I create a mask on its layer using the pen tool. The mask basically cuts out a hole in the video to reveal the layer beneath. I try to use the opacity to turn the mask off after the animation completes. However, instead of the opacity when set to 0 pct hiding the mask only it hides the video too. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated??

 

Thank you

If your current mask is set to Subtrack, 

then duplicate this mask (cltr+D)

set it to Difference and then use the opacity of this mask to hide the hole.
