    hello, i’m trying to blend one layer (an abstract animation) onto the sides of a masked layer. in trying to get rid of the straight lines of the image’s rectangular mask, I added an adjustment layer right over where the two layers meet ( the straight line) and added a noise effect hoping that it would make the two layers appear as though they were bleeding/interrupting each other. but because this effect occurs only within the adjustment layer there appears the straight lines of the mask of the layer. i even tried adding blur but there still exists the lines of the layer.
    i’m still very new to aftereffects and am basically trying to how to merge the borders of two layers while keeping the rest of the image intact.
    is ramp the answer? if so, could you refer me to tutorial or quick intstruction?

    i apologize if this question is a little convoluted.
    thanks for your time,

    I think that this is what you are looking for?
    If not try changing the blending modes.

    thanks for your reply. unfortunately, feathering doesn’t help cause it only occurs within the mask of that layer so it’s actually worse to feather alot because then the border of the mask becomes that much more apparent in contrast to the next layer.

    mama mia!
    by blending modes do you mean normal, add, screen, etc.?

    sorry i’m a newb.
