My mask seems to be off of where I put the points in add mode.

Here it is in none mode and it works well. This is probably a simple mistake, but I am still new to after effects. Thanks for the help!

Bad workflow. You have a Warp Stabilizer applied, which will of course do what it says on the tin - warp the footage. On the other hand masks are processed before effects and *boom* that's why your stuff is off - the mask operates on the unwarped footage. Ergo you need to structure your work by pre-composing the warp application and creating the mask in the parent comp on the resulting layer. Mylenium
