auto bezier CS5 masks?
on Sep 15, 2017 at 3:27:14 pm

Hello

All of a sudden when I draw masks, sliding my mouse to quickly creates an auto curve that I do not want. My aim is to make masks with straight lines but I like to move quickly and now when I do that a curve appears. It did not used to do this. Any idea how to stop this from happening?

Thank you
Noah

Are you using a mouse or a Wacom or something else?

Turn off auto bezier. Set keyframe type to linear in preferences.

Thank you Dave

I have the preferences set to "spatial interpretation to linear" - is that what you are speaking to?
I am not sure how to turn off auto bezier...Can you please point me in the right direction?

I see a button "RotoBezier" but that is not selected.

The mask (G key shortcut - looks like a fountain pen) is still auto curving when I move the mouse after clicking a point.

Thank you for any advice!

Sorry, I don't have that AE version in front of me, and Adobe keeps moving such things around from version to version. But you CAN open AE Help, search for Auto Bezier, and find out right away.
