How to edit objects inside of a mask?

How to edit objects inside of a mask?

May 6, 2020 at 4:00am
If I apply a blur to an object and then mask it, the blur goes away. I cannot edit the object to apply a blur once it's in the mask, and if I apply the blur to the mask itself EVERYTHING gets blurred, including the mask shape, which I do not want. Is there any way to edit an object once it's been placed inside a mask? Or a way to make it keep its effects when it's placed into a mask?

Thank you for using Vectornator! I tried to replicate something similar on my end, I masked two shapes, one had a blur and the blur remained the same. Are you referring to this? 😃

When I do that the blur goes away completely. :/

Since I can not reproduce it on my end, would be kind enough and post screen video so we can see the issue? Thank you. 😃

I'll do that today. In the mean time, is there a way to edit an object once it's been placed inside a mask?

You can go into the mask and only edit the top most object.

Okay, so if I apply an effect to an object and then mask it -- and then want to change it later, I have to destroy the mask and then reinsert the edited object? Just want to make sure I'm understanding what you're saying.

When you select two objects for example and the top most object of the mask is let's say a circle with an effect, you can only change that, nothing will be destroyed. If the circle was not the top most masked object then you will NOT be able to alter that, it will remain as is unless you unmask the objects, make a change and then mask again. Hope this helps. 😃
