When I use garbage matte, I get this junk (see image) diagonal lines across the comped in image.

 

I'm in the process of finalizing an edit and this could not come at WORSE time...

it didnt do this in earlier edits

I tried everything

even opened a new project to see if it persisted.

    Yikes!

     

    Which matte exactly? Those are not from the edges of the matte I take it.

     

    Does it show up on the Program Monitor window?

     

    If you slightly move one of the corners of the matte, does it go away?

    I'm assuming that the lines are the edges of your matte. Is there any other filter/effect applied to the topmost track or the lower one?

    That could be it, deselect the clip and render that area for playback?

    My the way, if you create a movie with nothing but green, you can play the movie while holding the phone, and as long as the light around your actor's hand is bright enough to not have green spill from the screen, you can simply key out the green. Or, perhaps you create a green matte and just have it full screen on the phone.

    Not that there's a problem but why didn't you just AE?

    I would never, and didn't, suggest that you shoot anything on the phone other than a green background. It keys out pretty easy even with minor reflections. Basically, if you do need a matte, it doesn't have to be quite so accurate.

     

    I haven't used an iPhone, but I have done it on my Android and it made life a little easier.

     

    I have done the same thing with a laptop, but it was necessary to dim the screen quite a bit to get rid of the spill.

     

    Shooting a phone outside? You are on your own. I hope I never have to deal with it.

    Well, it could, actually. Under the right conditions it eliminates the need for a matte.

    Agreed.

     

    But I hang out around here quite a bit and I have never seen anyone report anything like this before.

     

    Does it happen if you start a new project and try it again?
