I am new to Adobe After Effects. I saw a video and am trying to duplicate an animation effect they did. However, shortly into the video they select the pen tool, and then a little to the right in the toolbar, you can clearly see options for what I believe are "fill" (or color) and "stroke" before the rotobezier checkbox. (Yes I know, it's in Spanish, apologies.)
However, in my toolbar when I click the pen, I don't get these same buttons/tools/whatever:
I have tried messing around in menus, looking all over the place, but I cannot seem to figure this out - can anyone help me get those two options into my toolbar?
You probably have a layer selected in the timeline. When a layer is selected the pen tool defaults to mask mode. Deselect all layers before choosing the pen tool and see if that works.
hope this helps,
