    Masks move outside of comp


      Hello -


      I'm having an issue with the alignment of my masks varying between comps.


      I have three comps set up:

      1) "matte" is a luma key of my footage with a roto layer to fill in the blanks.

      2) "Horse CC" is an initial color correction.

      3) "HWM... is my main composition for compositing my shot.

      Here is the roto within the "matte" comp:

      and here is the "Horse CC" comp - the roto has stayed in position.

      However in the "HWM..." comp the roto around the horse head has shifted:

      Has anyone experienced this before/know of a solution ?


      Here's my system details:

          Check your layer alignment. It simply seems you have a temporal offset. otehr than that this could be a framerate mismatch, so check the comp settings as well.

            It would be easier to tell exactly what's going on if we could see the entire comp in each screenshot. There is no time reference in the cropped screenshots of the comp. Just the shots of the comp window are almost useless. Check your frame rates, check the layers modified properties (press the U key twice). Solo the layers. If you still can't figure it out select the comp in the project panel so we can see the comp settings and give us full screenshots with the modified properties of each layer giving you problems revealed so we can see what's going on in each of the three comps. Just drag them to the reply field and we'll try to help.
