Early filmmakers created in-camera composites by covering part of the lens with a mask while filming, or placing a sheet of glass with a blacked-out area between the camera and the scene, to prevent a portion of the film from being exposed. The cameraman would then rewind the film, and shoot again with the mask removed and the previously exposed area covered, thus combining two images in one shot. In "The Playhouse," (1921), Buster Keaton used this method to put himself on-stage as nine different characters. A stationary matte marks off a static defined area; a travelling matte follows the silhouette of a moving character or object and changes shape from frame to frame. Digital compositing techniques have largely replaced this effect today.

A binary value used to selectively screen out or let through certain bits in a data value. Masking is performed by using a logical operator (AND, OR, XOR, NOT) to combine the mask and the data value. For example, the mask 00111111, when used with the AND operator, removes (masks off) the two uppermost bits in a data value but does not affect the rest of the value. This is shown in the figure, which uses the data value 11010101. 11010101 Data Value AND 00111111 Mask ----------------------- 00010101 Resulting Value
