HI....I'm trying to draw simple drawings around a video - it takes soo long! So anyway - I succumbed to using the write on method since the screen capture method I tried had problems.

I drew a really simple drawing in photoshop - now I've spent 40 minutes doing the write on effect over it but for some reason when I am 90 percent done, it's not working anymore - I can't see the path anymore. I'm just painting over original and then before I render , I'll swiitch it to reveal original. I don't know if there is a button or something I clicked on accident? If I click B for brush it just paints over the top - I can't figure out how to continue my path. I've even restarted the computer.

Any suggestions?

R U trying just to draw a static outline, or have the outline animate around the figure?

Thanks,
I did try the Video Copilot method using Generate Stroke on another part of my project which seems a little easier than write-on. Still haven't figured out why write-on only goes so far and then starts erasing itself. I'll get back to it soon and probably ask a more specific question.

Is End set to 100 and Start set to 0 while you are creating your masks?
