Error: Mask Vertex Index Out of Range (26::205)
on Dec 11, 2017 at 3:22:02 pm

hey,
i'm in the process of masking a very large map of a continent (it's about 20 000x20 000). i managed to mask about half of it, and because the computer started running slow, i continued the work with mask no 2. then, i copied the mask no 1 (which is half a continent on the shores) and mask no 2 (which is pretty small), moved them into Illustrator, joined them, and pasted back only one mask. back in After Effects.

But i get this error:Error: Mask Vertex Index Out of Range (26::205)

is there a limit on the number of vertices or something?

thanks in advance,
Constantin

I wouldn't use After Effects for this chore. I would use Photoshop.

Yes, i know, i already did the map in Photoshop, but I also need it with masks in After Effects.

Then you can also create transparent areas on the map in Photoshop, and would not need to mask in AE.

Also -- check that the Photoshop file is RGB and not CMYK.

Also -- if you just got AE CC 2018, don't use it -- use AE CC 2017.

Also -- it would be helpful to know how much RAM you have.

And don't try to use GPU acceleration.

i want the shores of the continent with mask, so it can be vector, this way i wont have edged border when i zoom in, and also can add a stroke to have a beautiful borderline, and not some pixelated one.

file is RGB, i use AE CS5, 8 GB RAM, i dont use GPU acceleration. the problem is that i have googled the error, but i couldnt find it anywere. i tend to think there is a maximum number of vertices that can be used on a mask, but it's just a hunch.
