How do you include masking when exporting a frame to an SVG?

I have very intricate shapes and layers that need my masking. Using some layers result in the spinning beach ball for several minutes. When I export to an SVG to use in any resolution in Photoshop, there is no preserved masking. How do I keep it? Thank you.

For later editing in Photoshop, it is better to export it in PNG format, which allows masks and effects.

Yeah, it's a nice tip. Thank you. I like svgs, because it avoids the step of opening Animate again every time I want a new resolution. With SVGs, I can simply open it in Photoshop and assign it a resolution.
