Assignment 3
  1. Creating NEON
    We had a lot of fun creating NEON type. The main tool here was "SAVE SELECTION". That's SELECT > Save selection. That will create an an ALPHA channel which is also a "mask"
  2. A lot about Selections & Paths -

    Also, when silhouetting something - try Inverting the mask for a more accurate cut
  3. Sometimes you might want to see your Masks (or saved selection) a little larger. Simply go to the Panel VIEW Options FLY-OUT window

    A lot of effects can be created on your Titles by using this tool.
