P: (Masking) - Sync on faces, not person numbers

Hello,

 

TLDR: I wish the Ai was more clever when syncing subject masks, syncing faces rather than 'Person numbers' 

 

While editing I often create Ai subject masks for one or two people in an image. Let's say it's the bride & groom walking down the aisle for example... I've then got a big sequence of these images that I would like to sync.  But when you sync, the Ai more often than not decides to choose 2 random people sitting off to the side, instead of the first image where I've selected the bride & groom. 

 

Looking into it deeper, it seems it always syncs the 'person number(s)' rather than the actual intended target. So after correcting the mask to the correct people - some shots of the bride & groom could be labelled differently... 'Person 2 & Person 3' while the next shot could be 'Person 3 & Person 4' or if it's getting it really wrong 'Person 5 & Person 6' ....even though the shot is only marginally different from the first. 

 

It would be good if there was some rhyme or reason to it, but it seems it's just random as to how Adobe and the Ai software are numbering each 'Person' in the shot. It then takes a great deal of time to delete the incorrect mask and reselect the correct person every time for each shot.

 

It already recognizes each face, why can't it sync on the face rather than the person numbering system? There's probably a reason but would be a brilliant improvement and a massive time saver!  I surely can't be the only one. 

 

Thanks for listening.

 

Cheers.

"when syncing subject masks"

 

Are you referring to Subject masks or People masks? You might check out these two threads for others with issues with syncing/copying People masks:

I'm having this issue as well. It's beyond frustrating as the whole point of syncing masks is to reduce time. It works well when it's just one person, but if I have multiple people with masks, it's syncing all of those masks onto one person. I have to go through and delete most and then redo the mask.
