Yesterday I was working on AE in a animation with a Illustrator file. I used puppet tool to animate it, some effects and masks. When I finished it, I realized that the "Coninuosly Rasterize" option wasn't ON, so I turned ON for all layers. Then, I don't know how, the positions of the things, the masks, the puppet tool settings and the write-on effect was messed, all in diferent positions.
I thought that this would not be a big problem, because I hadn't save the file. I closed AE and opened again, and that problem was still in the file!

Before this happen, I saved several times the project in different files with "Increment Save". I opened the last one before the problem, and was messed like the other. All the prior files are now with this problem!! HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN??

I don't know how this could affect files that I wasn't using anymore!

Does anyone know WHY? Or if is possible to fix it, before doing all over again?

Here is the file: 1.8Mb
(in the end of the animation, it was supposed to look like the file!)

Thanks for your patience for reading this!
