I created a path in Illustrator that I brought into After Effects. I pasted it to a shape layer and created a mask. I then scaled and repositioned the path to the proper size inside After Effects. I was able to then generate a stroke along that path no problem.
However, when I then copy the mask path and try to paste it to a gen circle or gen flare effect,(I paste it to the effect's 'center') the path is automatically resized back to its original size and original position. Is there a way to fix this, or do I have to make sure the path is the right size/position inside Illustrator. I find this a pain because the great thing about vector is its scalability.
