      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to create a liquid motion effect on the word hydration. First, i type out the word then split each letter onto a seperate layer. Then, i copy the layer with an individual letter on it and pre-compose it, and open it in a seperate composition. after that, I use the pen tool to trace over an individual letter. Then i go into effects, and drag the Generate: Stroke effect onto the layer i just used the pen tool on. When i go to the path drop down i would expect to see 'H Mask' (The name of my Layer) but when i click on the drop down it says 'none' and i can't select any masks i have made.

       

      Here is the link to the tutorial i'm trying to follow: Imitating Liquid Motion in After Effects - YouTube
