Users can utilize Mixer’s existing masking features to add the effects for a particular project. However, to export that data out of Mixer, it will be necessary to add those masks or a combination of masks to a custom channel.
To add mask data to a channel;
- select the layer which has the required mask information
- Scroll down to the Custom Export Channel that is available at the bottom of the layer’s panel.
- Under the Layer Mask, select Add Channel from the drop-down
- Enter the channel’s name in the “New Custom Export Channel” pop up and hit save. In this case, the mask information has been kept by the name “Example” that is now visible in the custom channel list.
Once the mask information has been added to the channel, the drop-down menu will be modified, and the user will have two further options to work with
- No send
The no send option will remove that layer’s mask information; however, the channel will still exist.
- Editing option
This will open up the Custom Export Channels editor for further editing of the mask information.
The editor can also be accessed by clicking the three dots icon available in the Custom Export Channel.
