copying animated masks?

Just curious, if I create a mask and animate it over a few frames then copy and paste the mask on a different clip, will it lose all keyframe data, or still be animated?

Yes and no. I was only able to copy and paste a mask within the same project (I'm not sure if its me or the program). But when I did paste it, it retained its keyframes, so unless someone can find a way to copy and paste over different projects, I'm not sure how you'd use it.
Hope this helps!

Any time you want to transfer something from one project to another, that is what the preset system is for. Create a preset of the mask containing all the animation data, and you can apply it in any project you want.
Within the same project, all animation data will be retained through a copy/paste.
