If at some point you read this .... could use a little help.

Progressing through but now stuck on page 11 section 4.4.

Cannot figure how to "drop or attach" the Mask On layer to the Edge Highlight layer.

Hi Dannac, i don't know all the tutorial but reading the point 4.4 seems that you must create a mask, to do this you must have two layers, one is the mask and one is the layer that is masked, to attach the two layers in the Fractal properties(where are the layers) in the right the second icon from the botton is USE AS A MASK (shift+alt+k clicking on the mask layer) and the layer above will be masked from the layer under, i have done a quick example, using pixel a polar curve for a rose and a sfbm backgroud, as you can see the mask allow to show the backgroud layer but the SFBM backgroud doens't affect the rose.
For sure you must play with the point of control of the gradient in the opacity of the mask. Try to open the gradient of the mask and play with control points to look what happen, it's more simple to see it that explain it.
Ciao

Hi Dannac,

I'm sorry about the poor use of the phrase "drop onto" in my tutorial - my bad, it is confusing.

I think this terminology stems from already having a mask layer somewhere, duplicating it (i.e. the duplicate is already functioning as a mask) then dragging/dropping that duplicate mask onto another layer where it will automatically attach.

OK. It sounds as though you have your highlight ring ready to go. Just make a copy of your marble layer and place that layer just below your highlight layer. Now you can either right-click this copy and choose "Use as mask" -or- hit the "Use as mask" button on the right, second from the bottom. This will apply the mask to the highlight layer.

If you have moved your highlight ring so that it partially goes over the edge of your original sphere as described in the tutorial then applying the mask will serve to enable that highlight effect on the edge of your sphere and remove the rest of the ring around the outside:

I hope this helps.

Kept your background and added the other 2 layers to come up with something similar but different.

Thanks for the info .... it will helpful. Especially the tip of adjusting the gradient.

So much to this program. I'm amazed at what it does.

Try to open the gradient of the mask and play with control points to look what happen, it's more simple to see it that explain it. >Ciao Kept your background and added the other 2 layers to come up with something similar but different. Thanks for the info .... it will helpful. Especially the tip of adjusting the gradient. So much to this program. I'm amazed at what it does. ```` Fractal3_Spizzi_help { ::QmfGlgn2VTZTztNIQY47eG/fQjunEAhQSNDHabmeqna6dPUJsNjlAFA1Gnf9dRfYp46mWfM3 Q7yuL7uPvarVU6F1fY9qoIvyXL5xfZwUyGXravsuNO6XqK/eeOCFtXq2t3zZwxaxRp1xTCRW alVKvjH/gQrF3ndHmcHBRI3/RdlVKiesVpNv8iK4B37JOSo9KRtS4U6d8jS36V9Zs/lUKa9K jmH/1gpI42mWRpyfkjhK3I97NV8muavqV4cRerQ7aFWp2PkpGRLUxdD5CsKtc0tIEKJjySKw F3dzwn50sEGtAH1I2p541r2asQaF9B2IeWFiMUytqapW0ATHno52utNxRQatH5xtqnl1VKHO e9Kl2pqkDzywTaLEt2olrXZ68/pL3TWfkzUrq4UCDTxkcG98SVWHHCasaf32VuX6/OcHXcU7 mGTlk/4TdCr9I8pT9ikjvFBHtGfonhT+9qyDwZcIPwdkyKOmkQTZZ5Fo1r2ZFVKI/9POXjxA 7atJSprkPzx0oSTtBmfTGwsRLYWWGDDDvRH5p9j7efEGBTpjeIFLDJDXkDDkh95FrJ602mkm +GYB+axiwO1d49EiU29DpFmOjYyyq047hjpi04vpsz+TALGWz9fw/mxJDIgVMyKfuGs48hLE 2IDGfQ58CdZ4miA+MkBNn2zPDqfgfCwzBVLPYUb2Y2uJ08u+vHefjTZg+E6KTjW6chp6ZMWt SfQ2f5pVf4IAsi+tLGVMCCU40I4kyGtliynxscEDVQKOhmTwKmkizSQzOSnCIDzI59ZYiazP xmYCwwpTOKOVbaGJJhkPRzJo5HADYDc6Fx53onmoW0cPNbbxbD6nFKhFNz5JI0Fz3ksIFFFX IFQLsseXQg9JR5hdWTnu6t1Yv70R/H6nXJeGw5rU/MJeGC+60P/LxzC6a6vlvCtHtyQ/FpAa B9eGZjxZXWLQQTZjySLwz4VyJHgA9q+p+vR5Jt62 } sam.ufm:pixeldis1 { ::tM1aYgn2lw4SOIMIUU05kwe4l6k24nAFSrY0FgzcLgWM+SoQj8aixVvgM8cy5exASn4MA+CX gNL4HnvQYgAMbEcmPGX+XUYE2CSO7uF9x16Q8cPnN5eaX9VBhk3lbbuVeDa7hrk7tlwYI11U Kmd0r4UOZOvBXspUx+wFydZbr4gQIUj6BlRa2tviH1jqBtR2xZ/ANQxLdA== } sam.ucl:TruchetTiles(BOTH) { ; By Samuel Monnier, 31.10.00 ::tI/lUjn2tOV0utJMU03rU/HsovAhSSg1s2NtMxPQlqayjTTyzYWuaGbmtpq1f91GHcEh0qUp +AorP3jP3zBjBOo/+lXgQG0a0y+CSoKgRkDV1MBWjqyPadhfNTIa7V7yLqBOmFU+KziSFYoz oP3GnDzahF53tcWpUoTCDVK64VxmkwsNoMbHve7NRxs4SFlWtI2QSzLuJxSxvvxwJJDbDqRS KmFTkJof6NdPYZjoiiWveAC5TF+PqYi7lxkGPf11zXlkkZfFIVMmU2USUmiORzePYMO/CN4/ 6LPluniY6Bt5VQdID2N9D7IGNsqijYewOnfqzOrYn9Ryd65m70PrcPU4euC4V0nd0y/dpeHQ +nvTFtG3x8XB0gmZ/2gi2K7I7oa0WgRVRuW7os2aw3Vhbycr/1TYJI6UEBrY+OdTgoW0Cu/n j0ediGMRLWibQuTAvVJ4WNI4Oq3bBj8o7tEKcGR5dNOOP6+P/lIU0m/3hlyXi2nyeZHPD3dt Jz4BsWTlc0GbzJzKf+y3WO7103UtHFasDbq7fPFDHBj0crDlTVqTIW+7kW7N/JatxCONlFf5 mVf927+2RW7VTbeRWB== } mt.ucl:mt-curves { ; Mark Townsend, 4 July 1999 ; ; Orbit traps based on various curves. ; ::fCLonin2djVbvttNQ4vXg+f4mNQjVCibsdeZoLdwbdYABYdYotA7LFJgWiKmoykGS0rJB9H/ O+qIFVS3i92aXRbN5Ryn7uHe3JSy4M5Le6TAQWTWf1dwLhj89W76x4SgJp1u+lVCiEKYNSCP nGLVcVX5qVrxLEiFCRlW6aaBKrkU1QbBZFjrhBHZCdWA61kC2mmYNKXSlEjIt6Kh5cxViSt+ w5ansxQWRuxZHDx26mHCzb+AbtaSUrZkMZ9MgDihWvCeBqRQp7KhYtmLtrR/zBwElINpaNUC SPTHN8uMn5mvp+PoaD1MRA+O4Vk6CmgVY67975EYfY0E0mzFNj0Iml5s8Ism0i1bEOvKGHFE z5YDDO9CzUPILFFCOl0HQNM+nFoZOg+ZRFbzqOwcoe5t+EybHjC8mpVqRVmOXOtX9ccLDebF 929ag3SvRyy7owU0hnDzyucWvgeiD0fcjE3VLrutPagez6RBbLHOdfDDvvRwBwIv1/8JTzyu 8EfEkGu2MPhK87lO4D9akYKrYrH5HKQhgHlwsFXmEZRzoc1/hReY8jZws2ZrVqby2Jizr1gy M+89/HX8seJrEF0gkPc/oCDDbk20rSYkO/47d5WP7ZmEmz9pdZw79aEHN0bO3XiwNjgSGBT0 NaQNpeGNqmVLN4GOs4l6nI5qSmDvLSkquZLrZGyvJ7Cti4oJ+cDWN6CYWWN8o5pvxVWNhzm/ RWhcZotaq+Kr3Q/Khp8lj+Filo2RxT/PgbmFHF9RmcJjvTCj8lNO364fVzTHHFDtl00/lUDs 75mT6UtGCW5jgdC+myDWyO1XfQiIin6hH/nPG604cttjlCT1iYs/mFl+SkoOLKZbHGN9vO3s lZb+T5pOnUJjTqeh/CLj6ccA4Tfq739SFNTJyxPdqwlO7TTFdWmiUdIEGEOvBPju9qHD1tDI W12M0e8k55iKRd3j7hrjxLo3grzzy4tnqJ8CxKOtRdy1aKpa0QjoMDXEc07IUnkgawu3nB32 zmefoPNB9jGf0E11Z8hAbtOmloD9XOMxSZbP+HngvCeNMWdsDUyJ9qE2Ky17QlcK4z0MXMhw vui6v3sVRupgr3M+5theQ7S0/eAm+sPMcNzNhwkR/cngXAckdiqbaqln6wWEf0hyn16e9EKs Obbw+b/rQd+709lNHGEmEVDt1Ff6TKolkNV2HwiJ1mwgXpu0ezADTtmUTWB67xbWWOZtkJ4+ JOwpjNr0ysP7yAYg6VTU/Yf3Dsp5lLwGmXUAb4fOgBW7zoPw9kPmu+quJmwrRhdtAzBvUqzf ZQsj/+O+BMHc1Nkr37juk+gojx5XqrX73kfQ7vNILlDVDx4X3xJ+Jbt5BtNhhTxeXg0FRtYs 9rJXzZyNFaWG38VDjlSS8hfQFugD+OkGxjG0uI9AgUoJ4YPI2BI9v3b/qv12tBTqo4xH1lOa xing1vpkTRHLBojHbznWaePnBvbJrBw/yFSYTD+x2SRt/p+AstNy6+VfwpeCMhfXJNR9HNeS PqPXwl1iqG1j1ZgDEl6O0K6KKX2MGuQunxIj3K0msKSDIVVuVJ1bLYwRz4HwudvwakZ7jGaU 7iqpMof+SpHM0aB+lYUrsklBLoITiuDRmjr96O2ta5i6FM54UOyIAvLirz9lFE8yvJOyvKGH bYPC/YlADsxQgdixGcAuAz8t6jytgk/hrrFb4FJKo9wzOL/C1msx4zXSz/AtwYcKfR9BmaKf Pp/43x0OOImvqHQbPq4KYJRFZB0ySauEQPR5v7ZrTtX3NuHI2CC932vkk40vxPUfbKkiC8/s rHkY63G0q1x14/ytl36ZrItGxfS8vdi6 } ````

Hi Dannac,

I'm sorry about the poor use of the phrase "drop onto" in my tutorial - my bad, it is confusing.

I think this terminology stems from already having a mask layer somewhere, duplicating it (i.e. the duplicate is already functioning as a mask) then dragging/dropping that duplicate mask onto another layer where it will automatically attach.

OK. It sounds as though you have your highlight ring ready to go. Just make a copy of your marble layer and place that layer just below your highlight layer. Now you can either right-click this copy and choose "Use as mask" -or- hit the "Use as mask" button on the right, second from the bottom. This will apply the mask to the highlight layer.

If you have moved your highlight ring so that it partially goes over the edge of your original sphere as described in the tutorial then applying the mask will serve to enable that highlight effect on the edge of your sphere and remove the rest of the ring around the outside:

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply Chris ... my inexperience is the problem.

I'll re-visit that tutorial when I get the chance.
