Hi, I had done a mask which took many hours and I copied the text and managed to paste it to a text file. I had AE crash on me so all the masking got lost so the only data I have is from the paste into the text file.
Is there any way to get this data?
In general, there is not. I am sorry to say. You might be able to copy the text and use “paste mocha mask” in AE to try to get the shapes back. You then might be able to use “Mocha Import +” a third party plugin to get the shape back into Mocha, but I am not sure if that functionality still exists in that script. https://aescripts.com/mochaimport/
This is an untested, theoretical workaround.
