    I’m trying to use the pen tool the same way it’s used in every other Adobe app. That is, click to create an angled anchor point, drag to create an anchor point with a curve. Somehow, that’s not the case with AE. I have curves I don’t want, and I have to use the Convert Vertex tool to get rid of them. This doesn’t help my productivity when I’m trying to create some shape mask layers that I want to morph into other shapes…

    Is there a setting I’m missing?

    Never mind. I found the Roto Bezier checkbox. I may someday discover it’s purpose… Sorry to waste everyone’s pixels…
