Is there a way to mask brush strokes like you can with a pen?
At present, Im using a pen to create a mask then generate a stroke (Effects>Generate>Stroke).
I then use reveal putting a keyframe on the end of the effect to reveal the comp following the pen's stroke if that makes sense.
I want to use the same type of effect by revealing a larger background image, but the stroke's maximum width using the above technique is 50 which is not big enough.
From what i understand, brush strokes are vectors in AE so is the same type of thing possible using a brush to create a mask?
