    Please Help! Repeated error message popping up at start up with blank composition

    dontcallmeruth

      Hi! I am trying to start a new project in AE CS6, but I keep receiving this error message at start up:

       

      "After Effects error: could not parse mask shape on clipboard"

       

      When I first opened the program it worked fine, then when I tried to start a new composition it froze up and stopped responding then crashed. When I tried reopening it is when the error started happening. I've tried looking through some old threads, but those prior situations seemed to involve actually trying to import a file into a project when they received this error message. I am trying to start a blank project and still keep receiving it right at start up. I've restarted the program multiple times, but it still comes up.
