Is there a way to have a rerender triggered by renaming a layers masks? I get an UPDATE_PARAMETERS_UI after the renaming, but setting the FORCE_RERENDER outflag doesn't have any effect. I also set PF_OutFlag2_DEPENDS_ON_UNREFERENCED_MASKS.

look into GuidMixInPtr(). it will allow you to feed the mask's name into the function during pre-render, which would make AE see the cached frame is invalid when the mask name changes, and thus trigger a re-render.
