[quote="Madster":603id9nn]thanks for the examples, the first one did it.
Seems I wasn't getting any results because the erase object needs to be on top of the other objects (duh!) and works within a single layer.
this will be useful, I'm sure... I plan to use it to mask shadows out of an occluded object![/quote:603id9nn]
Yeah it can certainly do that, I was considering it in the other thread, but the way things are heading for me, i don't think I'll have the resources for even more objects lol.
