Clipping masks let you effortlessly clip the contents of one layer to the shape of another — even layer groups and nested shapes! So you can create a mask from any layer in your composition with just a click. To create a clipping mask, hold down the Option key and click between two layers in the Layers sidebar or Control-click a layer and choose Create Clipping Mask.
