Im relatively new to ae.
I have imported a live traced vector into ae and selected create shape from vector layer.
I want to use this shape as a mask for the layer below but when trying to create a mask i seem to only be able to draw a new
shape to use as the mask.....
im sure this is obvious.
Use the shape layer as an Alpha Track Matte for the lower layer.
This is brilliant. Thank you so much
Converting from shapes to masks is possible with manual copy-pasting of the path objects, but with complicated layers it's easier to use this script: http://www.redefinery.com/ae/view.php?item=rd_ShapesToMasks
