I'm doing something wrong, I can't get the Rigid Mask Tracker to work in CC. I followed the instructions to the best of my ability but the tracker window never shows the mask tracker dialogue.

I have normal footage in the timeline, duplicated, with a mask on the top layer. I have pressed M then selected the proper mask. Still nothing. Any help would be great.

The mask tracker was new in After Effects CC 12.1. Are you sure you have installed the updates? If you are still running Ae CC 12.0, you will not have the mask tracker.

If you are running 12.1 or 12.2, if you right-click on the mask in the timeline panel, do you have option to "Track Mask" via the context menu?

Otherwise, can you post a screen shot?

Crap. You got it, I was on an older version. Who knows why CC said I was up to date. Thanks!
