For the last several days I've been trying to use rotobrush 2 in AE beta (most recent version). It was working fine for several updates and then one that was pushed out a week or so ago has 'broke' it for me. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, rolled back (you go back a few versions and suddenly rotobrush 2 isn't available..?), made sure my MacBook is compeltely up to date.
Its hard to explain but before this happened, I used to be able to push play in Preview and it would capture my subject amazingly well with very little intervention on my part. Now, when I try to do that, the tool will endlessly propagate, the image will shrink into the corner on occasion, and my brush strokes become very 'boxy' and not smooth at all. I notice that the yellow resolution warning bar jumps in over the proapagtion progress bar (green) quickly from time to time as well. Above all else, it does a terrible job on its own. Even when I go frame to frame, its not ideal; I might as well be using the non-Beta version.
I am using Rotobrush version 2 with quality set at 'Best'. No other settings have ever been adjusted. The video clips I'm having trouble with now are from the same source (MLB) as I've always used, so video issues can't be the problem.
2019 MacBook Pro 16-inch
2.3 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9
16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4
AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 4 GB
Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB
Any advice would be most appricated. Beggars can't be choosers, but the tool originally cut my work time in half. Now its no better (maybe worse?) that the 'offical' AE
The "experts" on here have no response? No one else is having this problem, I guess?
We've had some recent breakage occur with RB 2 that we're currently investigating. I'll follow up as soon as I have an update. I might need more info from you as well. Thanks for reporting.
As James mentioned, there was a recent breakage which affected the results of propagation. A fix has been made and is available in the latest Beta, any build greater than 22.214.171.124. Would you mind giving Roto Brush a spin in the latest build and let us know if the results are more in line with your earlier experience?
Thanks very much for any feedback,

It's working perfectly again. The update after I posted this seemed to have fixed it. Thanks a lot for looking into it!
