Hello, i am using TrackersViz a script from aescripts to convert my vertex paths from my mask into shapes that track thoese vertex points.

Now i´d like to parent a light to each one of them in the same position as the sames are, this would take me for ever in an actual long mask

is there any script/method to do it faster? or archieve what im trying to do faster?

Copy the position of the shape to the position of the light. You can just leave it like that if you don't plan to move your shapes, if you do, however, delete the keyframes and parent the light to the shape layer you want to attach it to. Repeat that for all the lights. With just 4, that won't take long at all.

If it messes up, you might want to make your shape layers 3D.
