I'm new to AE, but I'm trying to learn the workflow, so sorry if this is too basic. I'm trying to use the path from a roto brush to make a new layer to obscure something in the foreground of the original shot. I've created and frozen the roto brush on the original footage. I've created a new gray obacure layer. The Adobe help section say you can copy the roto path to the newlayer, but I can't find where it says the actual steps involved to make that happen. I've read the relevant help sections and watched the videos, but I can't figure out how to do this.
Thanks in advance.
Hit UU to reveal all modified properties in the timeleine, select them, copy&paste. You are employing a rubbish workflow, though. simply pre-compose the rotobrushed layer to its own comp, then use that comp as a track matte for any other layers.
Thanks for the response. I'm totally new to AE and trying to learn via online tutorials and reading the Adobe help files, so it's a work in progress. I'll try your suggested workflow. Thanks.
