Problem with animating masks with tracked footage
on Nov 18, 2014 at 10:28:16 pm


I've lurked here for years. First time posting.

I am having a problem animating a mask on some tracked footage.

I tracked a head (clip A) onto a body (clip B) The track is phenomenal (Not really but let's say that it is) but the "neck mask" goes off a little bit.

"No problem" says I, "I'll just animate the mask in a simple roto job. So I go to move the mask... and this happens.

I pull out the points and nothing happens. I have seperated the masks into two clips so CLIP A (the head) is now "HEAD" and "NECK" one mask each. The mask doesn't mask where the mask is (thus not being a mask?) and will animate/pop randomly...

Sort of at a loss to troubleshoot when my ae reality starts breaking.

Can ya'll help me? Thanks!!
