Export splines into AE?

Is it possible to export my b-splines from Mocha into After Effects as mask shapes? I’m using CS5 and the Mocha that came with it.
I did a large roto shot and exported the shapes into AE, but the client wants all the information in After Effects masks. (My fault for not reading the fine print).
Is it possible to to export the splines into an after effects mask, or do I have to re-roto everything in AE?
Thanks in advance!

Sounds good. I’ve been doing a bit of troubleshooting with my other layers, and the mask works until it hits a keyframe in mocha, then it degenerates. I’ll send the file in a minute, I appreciate your help.

Hello, I am also having the same problem.
I discover that if I did all the keyframes on my mask layer the problem will go away. But that I will have a messy roto.

In CS5 if you go to the Edit menu there is an option called “Paste mocha mask”. This will paste the AE spline data instead of the shape plugin.
Keep in mind however that because we have to combine the tracking data with the manual keys there will be a key on every frame.

What version of mocha are using? This was a bug that was resolved in a CS5 patch. If you have an older version of mocha for After Effects you may not have the fix.
