I created a shape/graphic and centered it. I nested my clip, then applied the track matte key to my clip with the shape/graphic layer as the matte. When the matte is applied, the image moves up and is no longer centered. How do I keep matte centered?
You can see the shape/graphic layer outline and the video above it here:
There is no information on sequence settings graphics settings!!
Your images are off centre to begin with (even the screenshots in the forum are off centre)
Open image in Ps and center.
make the bbq image without any background.
I hardly use track matte anymore instead I use the EGP.
Draw shape in EGP.
Check mask with shape.
Both shape and image are independently keyframeable.
What did you mean by "There is no information on sequence settings graphics settings!!" @Ann Bens
The image is meant to be centered on the right 50% of the screen. My issue was the shape/graphic was the postion upward even with the clip nested and then track/matte/key applied.
How do you mask a video clip with a essential graphic/Shape layer?
Using the Graphics workspace, put a shape from the EGP Edit tab on the track above, position, and use "mask with shape".
Of course it will work with a video clip too.
If it's meant to work as it does with text, it doesn't work in 23.5
I should work. See screenshot 23.5
Upload project and original images to test
As Ann's pic shows, and I mis-wrote ... sorry! ... you can use the clip in the graphic then mask with shape above the clip in the EGP layer stack.
Exactly as Ann's pic shows.
Ahhh I see. How do you get the clip in the essential graphics panel?
At the lower right of the Layers part of the EGP is the "new item" icon.
From that you select text, shape, or importing images which can also be video clips.
... or drag from the project panel.
