Hello AEEnhancers,
i have a script using setValuesAtTimes which converts Shape paths to Mask path keyframes (to edit and run scripts requiring keyframes).
Vertices on all Mask paths keyframes are positioned as their original Shape paths so that Shape to Mask vertices translation is not required.
However, the "global" Position and Transforms are not transferred in the conversion to Mask paths, instead all Mask paths are created with anchor points at (0, 0) top left of the comp. view. Shape path Fills are also Not transferred in conversion to Mask paths.

So, i hoped anyone familiar could,..
1) please show me how to transfer Position transforms and Shape Fills to the Mask paths converted from Shape paths?

any help\suggestions much appreciated,
