    Is there an easier way to mask more than one layer? I have to create one mask layer for every other graphic layer.

    ok, imagine that you've created a movie with 3 layers.
    you make the top layer into a mask.
    the layer under it will be masked, but the one under it will stay the same. all you have to do is right click it and click properties, and in the properties menu select masked.

    glad to be of service!!

    if you could, please tell me if you've gotten it to work, if not i'll try to help you further

    Smile Thanks!!! Thanks!!!

    Thanks!!! It worked. I knew there had to be a way to do it. It seemed too repetitive to have to do it as I explained. When I attempted it before asking, I would right click the layer and attempt the “MASK” option (thinking secondary mask) and it obviously didn’t work. I would have never attempted to check the properties screen for the “Masked” option (makes too much sense), at least not at this point in my education. Thanks for giving me a hand up.
