In this course you’ll learn all about Masking in ProShow Producer!
Each lesson provides step by step instructions for you to create every single one of these effects all on your own. When needed, downloadable files are included for you to complete the lesson.

You’ll create your own effects using all of these types of masks:
•Basic Shapes, created right inside Producer•Unique shapes, such as hearts and paint splatters, that are added as Masking Layers•Animated effects by keyframing masks of all shapes and sizes•Collage Effects that use multiple masks and text layers.•Gradient Masks, for more subtle effects•Text Layers underneath masks•Text Layers AS masks•Video MasksThis course is taught in ProShow Producer 7, but is also 100% compatible with Producer 6. If you are using ProShow Producer 5, you can still follow along with nearly all of the lessons, except the two that use Text Layers. Text Layers were added in ProShow Producer 6.
