Hi Gang,

So I'm having some trouble with a mask that is isolating the area around my talents head turning on and off on it's own. It doesn't seem to have any pattern as to why it's turning on and off. When I say turning on and off, I mean that the tracking markers that are outside of the mask appear occasionally. If I go the the TC of the spot where the tracking marker appears, and slightly adjust one of my points on my mask, therefore creating a keyframe, the mask decides to work properly. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

That's difficult to say. We don't have enough information.

Please provide Computer type, processors, amount of RAM, OS, and description of any 3rd party cards installed. Also version of AE being used, and information on the footage being masked (media container & codec), and whether you use multiprocessing/Open GL (if applicable) and 3rd party card capabilities.
