    Masking video with illustrator imported vector shape




      I am trying to mask out a video of water by using a diamond shape with a translucent center, as seen below.


      I imported the illustrator file (I prefer to make the shapes with illustrator, not after effects) and created the vectors from the file in after effects.


      I know this is probably really simple, however I can't seem to get the shape to mask out the video behind it. I tried turning the vector into a mask, then copy and pasting into the video layer. Nothing seems to be working.


      Can anyone help me out with this?
