how do you get a mask to fade from opacity 100 to and opacity of 0. i used black and white in my mask…then masked a pic. but it didnt blur the mask…it just make it a straight line :. help! i think its called unsharped masking.

I will tell you that I’ve never used a mask to “fade” in and out. If the “hole” in the mask is there, then you can simply look through the hole or not. If you want the contents that you can see through the “hole” to fade, then why not make that contents themselves fade? Just wondering.

Btw, that is just the way I would do it. Perhaps someone else has done what you described.

Good luck.

I would say fade the contents behind the mask also.

I don’t think it is possible to fade the actual mask.
