    How to copy paste a mask from Illustrator to After Effects

    mikten

      So I'm trying to learn how to do the write-on effect on After Effects with this video by Dan Stevers as a guide. Link is below:

      Write-On Magic - After Effects Tutorial - YouTube

       

      I'm trying to copy paste a mask from Illustrator to After Effects. In the video, Dan simply uses Command + C to copy and then Command + V to paste it into After Effects. I'm trying to do the same thing but it never pastes the mask to AE. Would anyone have an idea of how to solve this? I tried to create a clipping mask from the vector file first but this didn't help either. Please help!
