How can I achieve opacity gradient effect in After Effects CS6?


Basically I have a composition layer that needs to have sort of fading out effect on it. I can achieve this in PS CS6 by aplying a vector mask on a layer and then choosing opacity gradient and applying it on created mask. But I'm struggling to achieve this effect in AE. Any suggestions?

There are MANY ways to achieve a certain task in After Effects and while the above answer will work, there is a much easier approach.

Select the layer you want to adjust go to your "Effect" tab select either "Radial Wipe" or "Linear Wipe" (depending on what fade you want) Then just choose the % fade, the angle of the wipe, and the feather

Hope this helps. Good luck and happy editing!
