Lost clip whilst exporting shape to AF

ok
i just exported a moving shape containing a figure from mocha to AF
i pasted the shape data to a background layer in AF
now what i see in AF is not my figure just a black shape
it’s like i only exported the shape from mocha and left the figure data behind
why would this be
cheers

Did you paste the data onto your actual footage layer or a different layer?
Is the shape across the whole shot or only a section of frames?

When you paste shape data it comes across as only the shape, just like an After Effects mask would, so it will only reveal your rotoscoped footage if it was on the actual footage itself. If you would prefer it to be on a separate layer, you can also apply it to something like a solid and use the solid as a track matte.

the data was pasted onto a totaly different layer that was in actual fact shorter in time than the animated shape i was trying to paste on to it
i guess that might have something to do with my problem
