I fired up After Effects CS5.5 this morning to continue working on a project. For some reason i can't create a Mask in the Composition window, i was able to do this yesterday. however i can cteate masks in the layers window. Can anyone help me with this issue.
If that does not fix the problem then something else changed. We need to know more.
Thanks Rick for taking the time out of your day to help me out. Ok i did figure out that i can create a mask on the second frame of the footage in the Comp window but not the first frame. Do you have any ideas why this is?
The layer you are creating the mask on must have an in point that is not on the first frame. Make sure you're on the first frame by pressing the letter i on your keyboard with the layer selected in the timeline.
