Export Layers Help?

I’m working on a project and I used mocha to rotoscope 18 different layers in one video. I want to export each one of these layers as separate layer masks on my composition. I have only been able to get all of these layers combined into 1 layer as a mask. Help?

Hi there,

There’s not a good way to do this in Mocha, HOWEVER, you will be happy to know there is a handy AE script for that by a wonderfully sharing AE User named Chris Green.

Export all your rotoshapes onto one single layer and then use the script to duplicate and isolate the shapes.

You want this one (save this link as a .jsx script): Separate_Masks_in_Layers

Hopefully it still works in the newest versions of AE, but it saved my bacon in the bygone years of stereo conversion. If it does not work, you may need to adjust the script in newer versions of AE or see if AE scripts has one.
