That is exactly the behavior that is intended. It makes however only real sense, if you also use the matte option. You could use this in complex compositions where you cannot re-order layers or for quality reasons you do not want a more exact treatment of the Alpha contours or, on the other hand where you use a matte on a fully opaque layer to create ghostly effects and trails. Indeed it has no use for more conventional warping...
ok tell me about that matt part
how to make ghostly effects and trails thats what i am looking for
Mylenium can you tell me how to use a matt on an opaque layer?
in a little detail plz
You simply select it in the effect's popup. The matte defines a threshold which pixels will be affected by the blending. The strength is mostly defined by the vector detail, error threshold and motionblur settings. there's no general recipe, so just try until you find some suitable values. Just be careful to not overdo - rendering could otherwise take very long.
let me get this straight, i have to use pixel mix right? not frame mix
then what sort of matte should i use??? i was using the frame mix the whole time cuz pixel mix takes too much time
by the way since this messaging takes a long time can i get a tutorial about this if you have one.
or i would like to get some online help like in a chat or so
if it is ok with u
plz could you help me i tried everything but i cannot understand the timewarp's matte function to make the ghostly trails.

so far your the only one who has replied to this post. so with a lot of hope i hummbly ask for your help. if you could come online and explain you it could help me a lot (firstname.lastname@example.org)
if not plz direct me to a tutorial which covers that area
This question came up on the Creative COW After Effects forum a while ago. I found the thread using this After Effects Community Help search.
The "Timewarp effect" section in After Effects Help refers the reader to the Kronos documentation for detailed explanations of these parameters and how to use them. (As After Effects Help says, Timewarp in After Effects is just a licensed and reskinned version of Kronos.)
Todd Kopriva thank you very much you post helped me a lot
