Shape Data turns into Layer not Mask

Hi all,
So when I import a shape data (“copy to clipboard” > paste into AE) it imports as a new Layer inside the video layer, not a Mask. It messes up because I cant apply a Stroke into a Layer on AE, only a mask.
I already tried importing into on a Solid and even a Mask inside the solid but it turns out as Layer either way.
Not sure if I’m missing some exporting setting on Mocha AE or something.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.

You have to use “Paste mocha mask” at the bottom of the Edit menu to generate editable masks.
Just pasting will create the effect.
