Hi, my colleague imported a bunch of prepped psd files into after effects cc and proceeded to animate the seperate layers. The idea was that our character animator would then go back to these files and add much more to the animation by animating the masks retained from photoshop. Unfortunately, the files were imported with the editable box unticked, and now everything is flattened. We've worked out how to make them editable, but this only seems to allow us to edit drop shadows etc, but the vector mask remains missing. Is there a way to get these mask shapes back for the elements? Or do we have to reimport and replace eveything one by one? Thanks!
Exactly that... You will have to import the doc as a comp so the masks vome in and then replace via copy& paste.
