Moving an animated mask to other layers
on Jun 4, 2017 at 10:51:08 pm

Hello, I'm trying to copy and paste an animated mask to different layers. Problem is some of the layers have been scaled down below 100% and moved around the screen, so when I paste the mask onto those layers it is on an incorrect part of the screen. Is there a way to affect a layer where the original mask was made and not have it shift to the new layer's size and centre point? Thanks in advance!

Nope. At the moment you're stuck re-scaling & repositioning masks. No fun.

What are you trying to do, anyway? Show us some screen shots.

The "copymasktolayer" script solves this issue that IMO AE should be able to do by default.
