So after effects is doing something VERY strange - I create a pen path by tracing a electrical signature in after effects (see pink path in the attached screen shot) , then I click 'm' short cut to bring up the mask path. I make sure the mask path is selected, then I copy it. I add the Write-on effect, and into the brush position, I paste the mask path points. I've done this exactly this way in the past but either I've lost my marbles or some weird preference is set to make the pasted path points both smaller and nowhere near the same position as what I have taken so much time to trace! Why??? How can it paste smaller and somewhere else? (green dots are going to be the brush points of the write on effect) Please help - I can't figure out what's the problem here - tried for the last 6 hours :O
I need to reveal the original image with the write on effect I don't understand why it's not working this one time.
Thanks SO SO MUCH!
I assume this comp will be used as a nested comp, inside a comp of other dimensions.
Make sure that this comp's dimensions and pixel aspect ratio match those of the layer. The Write-On effect should then work properly.
If you wish to use the Write-On effect on another layer -- a solid, perhaps -- make sure to use the comp size for the solid.
