in the documentation it is said to do copy paste straight from illustrator but i cant do that now, it is only imported as footage, or still image

With both programs open, copy the path in illustrator. Going over to AFX click on the layer to apply the mask to (or even and existing mask to be replaced) and paste. If you get any trouble moving it across, in illustrator preferences you can change the way it copies path information to the windows clipboard.

ok thanks, the problem was that I didnt have both programs on the same machine so I couldnt copy paste, but now I have em both ;)
