I am trying to animate a mask and when I click the animate tab it opens a small window saying I need to "close my shape" and I don't know how to "close my shape"

0 = closed shape
C = open shape

Notice how the closed shape has no openings in it? It forms a continuous line without breaks? That's what it means. Once you have drawn all your point, you have to drag the last point onto the first point to close the shape.
