    How do I get my Mask Path to show instead of the Mask Shape Dialogue Box?

      Hi there,


      I recently upgraded to AE CS6 and for show reason cannot get my Mask Path to show. I want to create a simple mask that animates from point A to point B thus revealing an object in my composition slowly. In CS5, all I had to do was click on the Mask Path Stop Watch and the yellow mask with pen points and bezier handles would appear around my object. I could then create another keyframe and change the shape of the mask with my pen/selection tool which would create the desired effect. However, in CS6 when I add a mask to my object and click on the Mask Path stop watch no yellow mask appears.
