Applying Masks to Replicators

Masks can be applied to a replicator’s source layer (used as the replicator cell source to
create the repeating onscreen elements) or to the replicator itself.

The following images show masks applied to the source layer of a replicator.

When the mask is applied to a replicator, the entire pattern onscreen becomes masked.

Note: Although masks cannot be applied to a 3D replicator, they can be applied to an
object used as a pattern source for 3D replicator.
