  • Progress: Move the mask perpendicular to the mask direction. Default is 0.0 and is based on the configured center position.

  • Rotation: Rotate the mask around the center.

  • Center X and Y: Define the X and Y position of the center the mask will have.

  • Gradient Width: Set the size of the gradient.

  • Invert: Invert the mask.

  • Mirror Gradient: Mirror the mask on both axis.

  • Blank: Offset the area that should not be affected by the mask.

  • Tracking: The progress can be controlled by a tracked Container to build the progress animation easier. Drag a Container to the drop zone.
