A better method of adding extra masking in Alpha Compositin is to use the correct compose method.
As mask already has alpha, use it.

Code: Select all

  composite  Mask.rgb  Alpha.rgb -compose Dst_In  alpha_masked.rgb
the above finds that parts of Alpha that falls within the non-transparent areas of the overlay mask image. if you want the reverse use 'Dst_Out' instead.
see IM Examples, Alpha Composition for more details. ... ose/#dstin

You do not need to extract and mathematically merge the masks.
