After Effects Clone Stamp Tool Issue
on May 4, 2017 at 5:38:04 am

Having an issue with the clone stamp.

I've got the layer I want to work with. I've made sure I am in the layer, not the composition. I've selected the clone tool. I hold down the Option key and click where I want to clone from. I see the crosshairs come up. After clicking I let go of the option key. I click where I want to clone to and drag my curser. I see the crosshairs moving where I previously clicked, but nothing is copying over to where I am dragging my curser around. My brush opacity and flow are at 100%. I go down to my timeline. I can see that a "Clone 1" was made in the effects on my current layer. I check my stroke options again there. Opacity and flow are at 100%. I can see the path my stroke has just taken. But nothing has coped over. I am left with my original image.

Any ideas as to what setting I am missing? I've searched through many tutorials and forums and have not found an answer that has worked yet.

Thanks!

Are the channels for your clone stroke set to RGBA or RGB, or are they set to Alpha? Could you post a screenshot of your entire After Effects user interface so that we can see what you see?
