Mocha Mask is Static When Pasted Into After Effects

I've used Mocha in conjunction with After Effects a hundred times and the masks that I paste always move the same way that they did in Mocha, but right now, the mask is just staying in the starting location and basically just chills there for the entire clip; I've tracked it in Mocha at least four times, used different files of the same clip, but the flingin' flangin' mask is as still as possible. What the heck? I've done about ten frames by manually editing the mask, but that took me an hour and a half; I don't have the patience for that nonsense!

How do I make the mask get its shit together?

Mocha can be picky about the footage's codec. Are you SURE the codec on the problem shot is the same as the others?

What if you create an image sequence from the problem footage, then use it in Mocha? Still a static mask?
