Lock position of mask (matte)

Hey folks,

I'm trying to create a UI video of a number of text options being scrolled through within a search field.

That means I want only a portion of text to be visible within a rectangle, and I want to move the type around within the rectangle mask (matte) *without* the rectangle mask moving.

How can I achieve this in Premiere Pro? No matter how I add a mask (via a separate title or directly in Effects Opacity), it always moves with the type I'm masking when I change the Position in the Motion Effects.

For reference, in Photoshop, this is as easy as clicking the mask link icon. I really wish there was a similar icon or tick box to check in Premiere.

Thanks for any replies.

If you apply a Mask to an Adjustment Layer and the Title is on a separate layer...does that work?

A Track Matte maybe a solution.

Apply a Crop to an Adjustment Layer above the text.  Nest the AL and Text into their own sequence.  (Select, right click, Nest.)

Thank you. This works pretty well, except I can’t see any other part of my video while I'm editing the nested sequence. Can that be changed somehow?

In Premiere Pro, I don't think so.

In After Effects, maybe.

Not sure what the issue is here.

I assume your "Search Field " is a Graphic box /frame?

This is where the mask is set up and this graphic should be on a layer above the text.

That means you have independent control of the text within the mask.

Can you post a frame grab?

Thanks for the reply, shooternz. Unfortunately I can’t post a screen grab.

Perhaps part of what s making this so tricky is the search field is transparent, revealing a screened back lifestyle image below it.

The Cropping of and Nesting with and Adjustment layered worked, but required a lot of trial and error to get the positioning correct as I couldn’t see the rest of my composition as I would making changes.

That said, I don’t quite follow what you are suggesting. How should I be creating a mask on the search field graphic in order for it to apply to the text on the layer above it?

I’m having a tough time getting my head around how these things are applied based on drop down selection menus within the mask effect.

This is where the mask is set up and this graphic should be on a layer above the text.

That wouldn't stop the text from bleeding over out of the desired masked area.

We  really need to see a frame grab or reference for this,

Some years ago and before masks, as we now have them In PPro..

I made a TVC and a component of this  was an excel spreadsheet on screen.

I was able to change the data in the separate fields as I chose. I even gave them a type on effect.

I am imagining this is something similar within a Search Box graphic.

Apologies for the delayed response. I ended up getting thing working via @Jim_Simon’s post.

Below is what I was after. If there is a better way of achieving this that would allow be to see the rest of my video while making edits to it I'm all ears.

Thanks!
