  • pasting paths fm Illustrator CS into AE

    Posted by Galactus on April 14, 2005 at 2:34 pm

    is it possible to paste any closed path object in Illustrator CS directly into AfterEffects and it becomes a mask?

    I’m certain I’ve seen it done before but when I do it, I just get a square or elipse mask object..?

    I’m trying to paste a hot chick sillohette path into AE to mask out some footage.

    any ideas or suggestions?

    thanks y’all!

    Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V will do the trick, if ‘AICB and Preserve Paths’ checked in the ‘File Handling & Clipboard’ preferences.
