Thank you for your reply.

I actually figured out the problem. It seems that Character Animate ignored my clip mask from Illustrator and projected the whole picture instead of just the clipped portion as it would in Illustrator. So I just erased the part within the clipped sections and was able to fix the error.

Good call. CH definitely does not know how to process those masks.
