How to make masking in After Effects

Creating masks in Adobe After Effects allows us to selectively control the visibility of specific parts of your composition. Here are the steps to make masks

1. Select the layer to which we want to apply the mask. 

2. Choose a shape tool from the toolbar (we can cycle through them quickly by pressing Q). 

3. Click and drag in your Composition viewer to create the mask shape.

Furthermore, we can use Pen Tool to create a mask or we can use track matte to make a mask.
