This is a really fundamental feature...it's basic, it's not even a feature, it's a basic requirement,
It's ludicrous that you can't create artwork with a mask and have it export the way you see it on the screen.
It's almost not worth creating it in Illustrator as the added work to chop the white space off totally negates the use of asset export @ different sizes.
This isn't something we should have to find workarounds for, if asset exporter won't export the artwork as WYSIWYG, it's not fit for purpose.
