Mask not aligning with path
on Aug 22, 2013 at 11:45:28 pm

1) I used rotobrush to rotoscope a short section of a video clip.
2) I used Auto-trace to convert this rotoscope into a mask.
3) When I paste the mask to my new layer the mask does not match up with the path, as in the picture below.

This is probably a mistake on my part, but I would like to get it fixed either way.

Thanks in advance.

Ensure that ALL layers have identical pixel dimensions and pixel aspect ratio.

The two layers are exact replicates of each other.

I just discovered that if I view the layer on its own with the mask the alignment works, but if I view it as part of the composition the mask is off.

I could fix it by adjusting each mask frame by frame but I feel there should be a way to correct the alignment for the mask as a whole.
