Search the forum for Garbage Matte to read about this known bug.
And please always say which PPro version you are talking about, since these things change over time.
sorry about not posting my premiere version on this post.
I'll look at the other forums, but just in case, I'm using Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 version 4.0.0
The old bugs were supposed to have been fixed in CS4. I don't think the problem has been raised before for CS4.
I've just done a test with 4, 8 and 16-point on PAL footage in CS4 and it all worked exactly as advertised under Win XP.
I also tried a 1280x1024 (desktop mode) sequence with PAL unscaled footage and the uncompressed UYVY CODEC - again the garbage matte was in the right place.
So maybe you are seeing something unusual with the garbage matte due to your system rather than a generic bug? Maybe someone else on Vista could run a test?
As for the distortion, that could be related to the CODEC you are using. Not all CODECs support variable frame sizes.
The garbate matte end points being off-set could very well be some non-generic error based on what I'm doing.
I didn't know that my Codec could affect the distortion - that's probably what it is, as it was notable especially (or maybe even only) on AVI files using Techsmith Screen-Capture Codec
