…In another movie in this chapter we…explore the mechanics of layer linking and masks.…In this movie let's explore the mechanics of working…with multiple masks here in a single layer stack.…If your following along with the project files open up 0603L multiple masks.…Let's say now that we want to take this window behind the drummer here.…And push that darker.…We'll add another layer. Create a square shape.…I'll match up the sizing here.…
Now I'll darken it using a few overall corrections.…I'll set this as an inside mask, and in this one layer stack, we've got…four primary layers all either ignoring or being limited by an oval…mask with another primary which is being limited by a square mask.…In versions of speed grade prior to 7.1 this would have been impossible.…This is also a good opportunity for a…final note on the mechanics of layer linking.…
Notice how layer two isn't using its linked mask which…is being ignored and just passed through to the layer above.…We can in fact turn off layer two's linking and see what happens.…
