I'm making a clip where the screen goes black and white and then I use a mask to highlight a person. The problem is there is a part where I have to use time warp but then the mask doesn't work which makes the clip useless.

Some effects render prior and above everything else, You'll have to precompose the layer with the mask, and apply timewarp to that precomp.

Do your Time Warp work first, prerender and THEN mask the resulting file. Otherwise it will lead to headaches, as you've experienced.

My suggestion is to apply all other mask/effects before the Time Warp. Precomp and then apply the TW.
