Allow Set Matte effect to see/respect transforms
If I want to use a layer as a matte using Set Matte, AE won't recognize any transforms (position, scale, etc) that I've done to it within the comp. It will only see them if I precomp the layer, adding more complexity to the file, and causing other issues.
Instead of just the option to use Source, Masks, Effects & Masks, can you add transforms? Maybe instead of the pop-up selector, you could have checkboxes, so the user could choose what combination of modifiers they want to use.

Dropping this link here. This feature was requested by Sander Van Dijk nearly 4 years ago. I would vote on his original posting too so we can gain more traction. Realllyyyy hope they can add this feature someday.

Yes, any update of the Set Matte effect is long overdue!
