i have a 3d layer moving over the frame, for example from left to right, with some rotation. It has squre photo
i want to create a mask, or a shape, which "Shape" property will be "binded" to this moving layer.
So, it`s shappe property must be animated, and in every frame coords of mask verticles must be the same as the coords of layers corners.
Is there are any way to do it not manually?

Mask vertices cannot be addressed parametrically in Ae -- not without a little help, anyway.

BAO Mask Avenger [link] is an Ae plugin which lets you directly manipulate the vertices and tangents of mask shapes.
