Create the Masked layer

The Masked layer is always under the Mask layer.

  1. Click the New Layer button, or choose Insert > Timeline > Layer.
  2. A new layer appears.

  3. Rename the layer fiery effect.
  4. Drag the fiery effect layer under the Mask layer so that it becomes indented.
  5. The fiery effect layer becomes a Masked layer, paired with the Mask layer above it. Any content in the Masked layer will be masked by the layer above it.

  6. Choose File > Import > Import to Stage, and select fire.jpg from the 05Start folder.
  7. The bitmap image of fire appears on the Stage, and the words appear over the image.
