the ellipse and rectangle mask options for my filters is no longer appearing. It was there, then I did something stupid (uninstall reinstall update, etc) and now it's not working.

Edit: the option isn't even there.
Are you talking about masking and tracking with bezier mask or just the rectangle and ellipse? Bezier masks is a feature of Premiere Pro CC 2014.1 (8.1). The rectangle and ellipse are features of Premiere Pro CC 2014 (8.0). Masking and tracking did not exist before 8.0, so that is probably why you do not see them in 7.2.2.
If you update Premiere Pro, you should get those features back.
Ahh...Thank You Kevin, that makes sense then. LOL aren't I a dummy! I thought I was using CC7 all along (I had some crashing issues with CC2014 and went back to CC7) I must have been inadvertently using CC2014 for longer than I thought. Unfortunately CC2014 is still crashing horribly whenever I try to make a new sequence or import footage... But that'll be a new post.
