    Great tutorial man! Explained things very well. Thank you! Do you have any plans in the future for making a masking tutorial which covers both the simple things and the little more advanced?

    I imported a file from psd as i usually do and this time I got this strange symbols in some layers that aren’t working the way I expected. It’s like a sequence of little blue squares with a landscape on it. Do you know what that means, and how to fix the error?
