Hi there,

I feel like I've found a way to do this before but I can't now work it out. I've drawn a stroke in AI using the pen tool, and I want to paste that stroke in AE on a solid layer to then use the Stroke effect. But when I paste on the solid it gives me the outlines rather than the single stroke mask.

Not a huge problem if it's not possible, I can easily draw the stroke on a shape layer, but it's bugging me that I can't figure it out!

Help gratefully appreciated!

If you have the Stroke effect on that solid and the stroke isn't showing up, make sure the effect is looking at the new mask.
