Hi, I find this weird problem where I can't select any mask's path below another mask layer. Example:
I try to select mask 3's path from comp viewer but mask 2's path was selected instead. Mask 2's path will even selected when I click outside comp area. By the way, not whole path was selected but only some vertexes/points (2 or 3 randomly).

keyframes added to scale and stroke effects.

I solved this problem by removing all the keyframes, effects and masks, then re-paste masks. However I have no idea what cause this problem.

Glad you got it sorted.

If you're going to be working with lots of masks, here are a great pair of keyboard shortcuts to know:

Select next mask: Alt+` (accent grave)
Select previous mask: Alt+Shift+` (accent grave)
