Perhaps an odd combination of some settings? Do you use the default "natural" mode? Any other parameters using some unusual values?
Are you using any effect that alters or modifies time in your footage? Are you using Rotobrush or Warp Stabilizer?
And what kind of footage is this?
no odd settings. I applied it directly to the layer
no rotobrush or warp stabilizer. I applied it directly to that layer and I have tried it in a new project on several different layers.
I'm wondering if I have a bad copy of AE. I've the problem of Mocha for AE not being able to open up. and I had to re-install AE twice. But then again, my original and backup of AE are from 2 different sources.
