To create a mask layer, you place a filled shape on the layer. The mask layer reveals the area of linked, underlying layers that lie beneath the filled shape, and it conceals all other areas. Mask layers can contain only a single shape, instance, or type object.

-> To create a mask layer...

1. Select or create a layer containing the content that will be visible through the holes in the mask.

2.  With the layer selected, choose Insert > Layer to create a new layer above it.  
 A mask layer always masks the layer immediately below it, so be sure to create the mask layer in the proper place.  

3.  Draw a filled shape, place type, or create an instance of a symbol on the mask layer. Flash ignores bitmaps, gradients, transparency, colors, and line styles in a mask layer. Any filled area will be completely transparent in the mask; any nonfilled area will be opaque.

4.  Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh) the mask layer's name in the Timeline and choose Mask from the context menu.
 The layer is converted to a mask layer, indicated by a down arrow icon. The layer immediately below it is linked to the mask layer, and its contents show through the filled area on the mask. The masked layer name is indented, and its icon changes to a right-pointing arrow.
 To display the mask effect in Flash, lock the mask layer and the masked layer.
