So, I'm new to After Effects but I've learned lots of the basics recently and consider myself an advanced user with basic knowledge of this software.
I would very much appreciate any help with an issue I can't solve myself.
I've got a scene when my sister moves around a little bit and I used the rotobrush tool to cut her out and then pasted her in another scenery.
When I started to apply effects and different filters I noticed parts of her disappeared, the roto became broken, but I solved this with precomps. Everything went well until the rendering. I did preview the whole editing in realtime with success, but when I render it for real there are just her hands still there. I'm using the H.264 codec, 1080p/50. The project and all the compositions also have these settings. What can be the cause of this?
After some reading on different forums i found out about the Freeze Roto tool. Maybe that's causing this issue. I will update here after I've tested it.
If your Freeze Roto doesn't help, there is another fairly easy thing to do: before importing the file into AE, transcode the h.264 file to a lossless codec.
Thank you, that is good to know. I have now successfully rendered my video after I froze the roto, it was as simple as that.
Another thing I noticed now in the last step was my roto apparently were drawn during half quality resolution, which I didn't know when I drew it. I changed the resolution to full afterwards but that screwed up the whole thing. I had to stick with the half quality drawing, but the result looks good anyway, this time. I'll post it here to help others.
