Hi there,

I'm working on a project in Premiere Pro CC 2015.3 in which I'm masking out text to make a character pass in front of it, but I've run into two issues:

1) The text has lines going through it. These lines appear in the export settings dialog and rendered file, but not in the Premiere Pro project.
2) In the export settings dialog and rendered file, there is also an extra frame that causes part of the text to suddenly reappear. It doesn't match what I've masked and isn't in the project preview.

The screenshots below visualize the issue:

I hope you can help as this is very frustrating.

Thank you!

Have you tried turning off Use Maximum Render Quality in the export settings? Do you have Composite in Linear Color checked in your sequence settings? Try unchecking both and re-export to see if it doesn't include your text.

Nope, no difference.

Someone on another forum suggested 2 different things:
- My footage was Interlaced, which it is.
- The GPU acceleration was the issue.

I tried the following things:
- I changed the Field Order in the Interpret Footage setting to "Conform to: No Fields (Progressive Scan)" - it was "Use Field Order from File: Upper Field First" before. However, this did nothing.
- I switched the Video and Rendering Playback setting in Project Settings from "Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (CUDA)" to "Mercury Playback Engine Software Only", and it ended up just messing up my mask but not fixing the problem (although it shows up in the project preview now). Here's a screenshot:

As you can see, even though the area is masked, it isn't being masked out.

I don't know how to proceed. :/

Okay, if anyone does happen to come across this issue and is as big of an idiot as I am, here's how to fix it:

1) I had extra keyframes past the end point of my text clip (a leftover from tracking), which was morphing my mask. Removing those keyframes solved the issue.
2) I had my export settings set to "Match Source," which included a Field Order setting of "Upper First," so it was exporting an Interlaced file. I changed the export setting to Progressive and now everything works as intended.

That was hours of grief for what turned out to be a simple issue... Sigh.

I would have exported the shot -- with handles -- then done the composite in After Effects. It could conceievably have been a 25-minute job. No kidding.

That's why The Good Lord made After Effects in the first place, y'know..

What do you mean exported it "with handles"?

I disagree, simple masking can easily be done in PPro

A character moving in front of text isn't exactly "simple masking". It's rotoscoping, which AE does a lot better than PP.

I find it easy to do and with good results.

Well, ma'am, I am glad you find success. I guess I'm lazy and would rather have AE do more of the job for me instead of animating masks... sometimes on a frame-by-frame basis.
