Is anyone else confused by this, from Adobe's instructions:  "After freezing, you can still make adjustments to the matte itself in the Roto Brush effect without re-propagating. If you need to add or remove from a selection after freezing, you can unfreeze the propagation with the same button."   My confusion is this:  What adjustments can you make to the matte without unfreezing?  Actually, the whole propagation and freeze thing is confusing.  When I freeze, it starts to propagate (or possibly render, or save or ?? and it takes ages.  Then unfreezing takes ages.  Then clicking anywhere begins propagation again, taking ages. 

Also, clicking between the layer and the composition, means waiting for more propagation every time, no matter how often propagation has occurred.  3 days later on a 7 second, admittedly complex, clip and counting.......  I suspect I'm having UWD, Unusual Workflow Disorder. 🙂

Hi so_hyung321

"What adjustments can you make to the matte without unfreezing?"

Since Ae is going to cache that info, not much.

 

Here's a resource from Adobe that walks through it.

On the perfromance issues your battling with,  this may prove useful:
