Hy, I have imported a "live photoshop 3d" in After Effects and now I'm going to mask it, but I can't find a way to do it. Mask applied on the live layer simply won't work. It's important for me to apply the mask on the 3d layer because I want to move the camera and the mask has to move with it...

please help!

Have you tried pre-composing the layer before you apply a mask?

You'll need to put a camera in your precomp. Either finish your camera animation and copy and paste it into the precomp or setup a camera in the precomp and then tie it with expressions to the camera in your main comp.
