Hi,

 

I am having an issue in which an image (png) seems to vanish when dragged towards the middle of the screen; this only happens when it is inside a mask. Here is a video.

Does anybody know why this happens and how to fix it?

Hi, J-Star! Nice to meet you. Thanks for the informative video you posted. I love the technique! I tried to reproduce the issue but could not. I could not see the scale your graphic is sitting at, so if it is not 100%, that may be a culprit. Here are some other things you can try.  Try the same effect in a different sequence. If it works, your sequence might be corrupt. Copy/paste everything into the new sequence for a remedy. Try the same effect in a different sequence in a new project. ...

Hi, J-Star!

Nice to meet you. Thanks for the informative video you posted. I love the technique! I tried to reproduce the issue but could not. I could not see the scale your graphic is sitting at, so if it is not 100%, that may be a culprit. Here are some other things you can try. 

 

  • Try the same effect in a different sequence. If it works, your sequence might be corrupt. Copy/paste everything into the new sequence for a remedy.
  • Try the same effect in a different sequence in a new project. If it works, your project might be corrupt. Copy/paste everything into the new sequence in a new project for a remedy.
  • Try the same effect with a different graphic.
  • Try the same effect but nest the graphic with the Transform effect and add the mask to the nest.

I hope the advice helps you! Please return with any questions.

Thanks,
Kevin

Yes, the graphic was at 100%.

 

Try the same effect in a different sequence. If it works, your sequence might be corrupt. Copy/paste everything into the new sequence for a remedy.

Yes, I tried doing it on a new file and even tried it on a different computer, the issue was the same. I have attached the PNG I was using if you want to look into it a bit more, it does seem to be a bug.

 

Try the same effect but nest the graphic with the Transform effect and add the mask to the nest.

I hope the advice helps you! Please return with any questions.

This seemed to do the trick! The issue didn't end when the image was nested.

 

Thanks for your help 🙂

Make sure the parameters under Vector Motion are set to default (as in not animated)

I agree with Ann, the issue probably is that either your Vector Motion or your Video Motion is not centered.

I am not sure what the issue is, it was just a PNG file I imported, I did try with other images too, I had the same issue. Whenever something was moved out of its original position, it would disappear if you had a mask applied to that layer (I hope that makes sense). Nesting and then applying the mask/transform afterwards seemed to work though.

Nest the png image in the current sequence and then use the transform effect on the nested sequence...it should work fine.
