    Freeze frame/pen tool issue in Ae CS6


      Can't figure out why I am all of a sudden having this problem. I didn't before. Sending both YouTube links.  I am using Windows 7 64bit and Ae CS6.

      This top link is the problem I'm having now.  The link below is when it was working correctly.

      Any insight will be much appreciated.

          Have you actually checked the time-remapping values? Because that's basically what the Freeze Frame function does - it just pins a given value as a TR keyframe.

            it appears that the first layer is in freeze. there is a mask on the layer to a different point in time. that's what is shown in the screen capture.


            usually users spend some time describing what is wrong, but don't send a screenshot or video capture. you did the opposite . what EXACTLY is wrong here? what specific steps did you take and what happened ? what did you think was going to happen? recreate the steps you made and we know how to help you.


            if I had to guess, you followed a recipe for a tutorial but did not follow the steps exactly, and your knowledge in the software is not so great so any wrong turn you make leaves you in a mess. working intuitively in Ae can get you somewhere but more often it will get you nowhere. read through here:
