Hello,

I have a mask synchronization issue.
When I synchronize several images, the masks are transferred to the other photos but are no longer in the same place. 
Can someone help me ? I've searched, but I can't find the problem. thank you

Can you provide more information? It's not clear what the problem is. The masks are transferred so what is missing?

Thank you for your reply. 
The masks shift, and are no longer at all in the same place.
So everything has to be redone.

Is one of the photos directly from the camera and the other edited in Photoshop?

No, both photos are from lightroom.

The first is the one I retouched, with localized masks.

The second is the result when I synchronize (or copy paste) the editing parameters on a second photo from the same series.

The retouching masks copied and pasted well, but they went anywhere in the image

In Develop, type "i" to display the info overlay in the upper-left corner of the photo. What are the file extensions of the two photos?

Are you syncing the masks to virtual copies or other photos?

 

Are you syncing the masks to photos with the same crop/aspect ratio?

These are all real independent photos, there are no virtual copies.

The photos are the same framing / angle of view. They are taken with a tripod and no parameter moves between the 2.

Usually LR should sync Masking correctly between different photos IF the crop, the aspect ratio is identical.

In other cases Lr fails to sync correctly Masking.

 

In case please download the Plug-in "Copy Settings"

by @johnrellis 

Link here. 

 

With it you should not have problems at copying/syncing Masking in any scenario you desire + more useful features that LR doesn't have.

 

Copy Settings is superior to LR internal copy settings, I recommend it.

Based on what you describe here, the masks should align when synced. Have you tried this with a different series of images? Does it work as expected sometimes, but not all of the time?

Yes that's exactly it. On some images of the same series, the masks are well synchronized, and on others not.

I have the same problem on other photo series.

To make progress on understanding what's going wrong and file a bug report with Adobe, we'll need two sample photos showing the problem (a source photo and target photo of the sync).  Select the two photos after you've done the Sync, do Metadata > Save Metadata To File, upload the photos and their .xmp sidecars to Dropbox, Google Drive, or similar, and post the sharing link here.
