Kevin TosiContinuously Rasterize is messing up Paint and Eraser effects

Hi,
I'm working on a 2D animation with characters I created in Illustrator. I drew over them by using the Paint Brush in After Effects to to clean them up a bit but when I click continuously rasterize, what I painted/erased becomes misplaced and large. I've attached a screenshot of what it looks like when I turn on continuously rasterize. Does this have to do with the fact that my images are vectors and the paint tool is not? I can't seem to figure it out. Thanks for your help!

You'll be much, Much, MUCH better off doing the cleanup in Illustrator, especially if you intend to make Continuously Rasterize an integral part of your animation. You'll have a far easier of time with your project if you do it that way.

Let me rephrase my question then. My elements when rotated or moved need to be shortened or curved (like a lower part of an arm or hand). And painting and erasing has given me the best freedom to make those adjustments. Would you have any suggestions? I've tried using masks but since my elements have an outer stroke, the mask cuts it off and I still have to draw to connect say lower arm to upper arm.

I actually decided on selecting all of my layers and creating shapes from vector layers. This seems to be a solve for now and I'll be using it in the future. It's actually what I've been looking to do this whole time, much nicer manipulating paths.
