Hi there

 

I am quite new to Premiere Pro, and I am experimenting with creating opacity masks.

I have just created quite a complex mask of my friend on a bicycle:

However, the mask doesn't reveal the clip underneath, and inverting it just seems to slightly increase/decrease the contrast of the mask in comparison to the rest of it's clip.

When I initially created the mask, some of the points were overlapping, so I assumed this was causing the issue and removed the overlaps with Ctrl + LClick.

What could be causing this issue?

Thanks in response for your reply!

You made a mask with the Lumetri effect instead of the Opacity property. You can copy/paste the mask over.

Click on the mask title line in Lumetri to select it, then right-click/copy. Go to the Opacity effect, right-click/paste. Neil

You're right - thanks Ann - is there any way to copy it across to opacity?
