    Number/object disappearing out of mask
    Hey guys, I need help. Really can't figure this out. How do you do an effect where an object moves out of a masked area (object moves upwards for eg and disappears as it's going up)? I really hope someone can tell me how to do this. Thank you!

    Re: Number/object disappearing out of mask
    Hi - I'm really an audio guy myself, but as I understand it you'd accomplish this by creating a (Bezier) mask (Draw Mask), and then updating the mask periodically using keyframes, making the mask follow the motion of the object. I've attached a link to a FCP course on FX (at the top) -- there's a section on working with masks, and the following section goes over animation -- check out video 18 on creating the Mask and the next few videos that follow (particularly video 20 and on) on using keyframes to animate effects. Hopefully there'll be something helpful in there. Perhaps these Apple support pages on animating masks in FCP might also be of some help:
