Create the illusion of type and shape interlocking with the simple application of a layer mask in this video.
- [Instructor] Here is how we can create a simple…interlocking effect using type and a custom shape.…Here's the starting state let me just explain the things…I've done to this document, I've added a gradient…to the type that gradient is clipped to the type…and the arrow is a shape layer, a shape layer using…a custom shape and to this shape I've added some effects…and then I put that in a group and I've added some effects…to the group and on top of everything I have added a layer…of film grain.…
Now what we need to do is to create the interlocking…effect, so I'll open up that group and I will come…to the arrow layer, I need to add a layer mask to this.…So I'm going to click on Add Layer Mask.…Now I'm going to activate the selection of the type.…So I will Command click on the type layer and we see…that active selection.…Now making sure that I'm on the layer mask of the arrow…layer, I will press B to choose my brush tool…and I'm working with a hard edge brush.…
I just kind of paint out the portion of the arrow…
