Using Inverted Mask with Shapes

Create inverted masking with Shapes to make cool effects.

First add a shape to the canvas, in this tutorial we're going to use a circle.

Add a custom scale animation and set the scale to 0.

Right-click on the Circle clip and select Duplicate.

Right-click on the duplicated circle and select Mask with > Circle.

Select the mask clip and choose Yes for Inverted.

Offset the mask animation a bit to make the first circle scale before the mask animation start.

Click the Shape Mask clip and add 1 or 2 to the Scale, i.e. if the Scale is 70 make it 71 to hide the circle outline.

    This instruction doesn't seem to be the best way to create circle that scales and acts as a mask anymore. Isn't the best way to use the "Shape Mask?"
