It seems I need assist again..

Hello, am trying to create a perfect circle mask in center of
comp. Now everything I have read and seen says.....

Using elliptical mask tool, use shift, but this does not work for need.
Also, select layer,DBL Click elliptical mask tool and it should create what I need. but it only creates an elliptical mask.

This mask will have an expression that rotates it, with concentric more circular masks within to create rotating circles within.

Every time I think I get a circle and add expression, it is all over the place. wiggle(.4,180)

what Am I missing? why does it not make a perfect center in comp?

So, you edited to say "LOL" a couple of times, but you didn't bother to change the part where you said that we were lying?
