- Create Mask Perfect Size
Have the layer selected and double click the rectangle tool, if you then want to perfectly cut it in half diagonally then click off the shape. Then click on the shape again, select a corner and press delete (or backspace)
- Creating 3D Precomp
With the plane created, you precompose the layers and move all attributes > then with the precomp created collapse transformations & make the precomp 3D
Using what I learnt by watching the map tutorial I was able to trim a path that looks like skywriting.
I feathered out the text which I created in Illustrator to make more fluffy.
