rd: Masks to Shapes

This script creates a shape layer with paths for each mask on the selected layer.

This version of the script will create a shape layer with paths for each mask on the selected layer. Other current issues:

  • Only the transforms at the current time are copied over; keyframes and expressions on them are not used.
  • The shape layer might not have the same transforms of the selected layer in all cases.
  • Mask modes and mask opacity are ignored.

...and probably other issues I don’t know yet. :-/

Note: This script requires After Effects CS3 or later.
