See a simple example of using a clipping mask to add texture to the visible pixels of a layer.
- [Instructor] In this movie, I'm going…to show you how we can use a clipping mask…to put texture inside a shape.…In the case of this example,…how we can put the clouds image…inside the shape of the text.…Now, by the way, I have converted the text…to a shape land, just so that we don't…run into any missing font issues.…Let's switch to the starting state,…and I have my text layout,…and I have my clouds layout.…I need to make sure that my clouds layout…is above the text layout.…
That's the first thing.…I select the clouds layer,…and then from the layers panel menu,…I choose Create Clipping Mask.…I can also use the keyboard shortcut,…which is command option G, or CTRL+Alt+G,…and you can see then,…the above layer is clicked to the layer below.…Now, of course, I will also need to add in…a solid color fill layer beneath this,…so that we don't see the transparency.…
So, I'll come to my adjustment layers,…and choose solid color, and I'm going to go with black,…and I just need to make sure that that…is down at the bottom of my layer stack.…
