Create The Second Masking EffectGo back to scene1. Create a new layer, type MASKING text in stage, then convert it to movie clip. Next, double click the movie clip to create a masking effect for the text.
Add a new layer, name it as disc layer. Draw a disc image by using oval tool (without stroke) and fill it with radial gradient black-white color. Convert it to graphic. Add keyframe (F6) in position 30 and change the position of disc to the end of text. Add key frame in position 60 and change the position of disc to where it starts. Make a tweening between keyframes.
Create a duplicate layer and animation of disc layer. This duplicate disc layer will be a mask layer. Add a new layer below as masked layer, name it as text big1 layer. Set the duplicate disc layer as mask by right-clicking on the layer and choose Mask. Copy the text in text layer and put it in text big1 layer. Modify the text by clicking Modify > Transform > Free Transform or press Q, make the text bigger than it is in text layer. Change the color to be light grey.
Add a new masked layer below text big1 layer, named it as text big2 layer. Copy the text in the text big1 layer and paste in place in text big2 layer. Change the text color to be dark grey, and change position of text to some pixels right and up so that it looks like a shadow of the big text in text big1 layer.
