Using the rd_MaskstoShapes script but it isn't working
on Feb 22, 2017 at 10:54:51 am

Trying to convert multiple (40+) masks to shape paths so I can use the shape and not lose resolution when zooming into it

But everytime I use the script on the layer holding the masks (an adjustment layer) it just creates a shape layer containing those masks..

Am I doing something wrong or is that just how its meant to work.. ?

FWIW I just tried that script and it worked for a single mask on CS4. I've looked at the code and I don't really see how it could create masks.

The new path created was called mask 1 etc because it had the name of the original.

Just my pennyworth as I really don't know what I am doing.
