[FEATURE] shape layer (other than the mask)

We can draw shapes using the mask tool on any layer, however, the mask will be limited by the size of the plane/layer itself.

On the other hand, when we draw free shapes for motion graphics and the layer area is just the shape, all the layers that interact with this shape will deal only with the shape area without the necessity to adjust the layer (plane) size every time we do animation with these shapes.

For example, when we change the size of the mask, it may exceed the plane, so we will have to adjust the plane size as well, but when we just have a free shape that is not necessarily connected to another layer, it is easier to modify and it is a big time saving to be done this way.
