About using filters and masks with replicators
You can apply filters or masks to a replicator or to the image sources used to create replicator cells. (However, you cannot apply filters or masks to the replicator cells themselves.)
When applied to the replicator, a filter affects every element of the replicator pattern. When applied to an image source layer, the effect of a filter is retained when the layer is replicated.
For more information on applying filters to layers in your project, see Filters overview.
When you apply a mask to an replicator source layer, the effect of the mask is retained when the layer is replicated.
You can also apply a mask to the replicator object itself.
Note: Although you cannot apply masks to a 3D replicator, you can apply them to the image source layer used to create a cell in a 3D replicator.
For more information on working with masks, see Masks and transparency overview.
