    Scissors tool in after effects

    gregs42888484

      I was wondering if there was something like the scissors tool from Illustrator in After effects.

      I need to make a cut in a circle so there are two different end points.

      I need to create this path from a closed circle.


      Thanks,

      Greg

          To open a closed path you can right-click on the path in the timeline and drill down the mask menu options, then first select or set the first vertex and then select open path. If no vertex exists where you want to cut the pass you can use the pen tool to insert one and then set it to the first vertex.
