Hi...
In AE the txt effect have already a mask. When u use the txt fx u have to selected the box" composite on original" if it's selected.
Otherwise u can make your txtin illustrator for basic txt.
And if u want to use the txt area as a mask u should play with the track matte box or the fusion mode.

bye
