I have imported a logo from Ai to Ae, created shapes from vector layer and then new mask for the shape. My problem is the mask is a rectangle even though the object is wheel with holes in it... The background is transparent. When I create the mask two things can be seen: Rectangle (for example orange) - same color as the mask color reference and ''path'' around and within my object (for example purple) which doesen't show nowhere as a separate mask. Is it possible to make the object mask without the rectangle? How? (I know I can draw around and within the object to create the masks... I am asking about some instant technique)
Masks don't share the same logic as shape layer conversion, but lucky for you, you can simply copy & paste path data from shapes to masks and back.
