Hi everyone!
I'm a new Motion 5 user -a total rookie.
I'm trying to get a mask to desaturate a face (classic "demon face") but as soon as I complete the mask with the bezier tool it turns white (unlike in many tutorials where I can still see the face).
Next I try to add effects (such as desaturation) but nothing seems to affect the mask. It does affect my (whole) clone layer, but the mask remains white.

The same happens when I want to add generators from the library: the whole image gets the effect and I just can't make it apply to the mask only.

Any tips, please?
