Using a mask and feathering, also feathers the edges of whatever layer it's on

Why would this happen at all?

It makes no sense that using the mask now also feathers the edges of my layer -_-

This premiere pro version has just been riddled with the most weird bugs I hope 2020 is better.

 

Anyone know of anyway to fix this?


Tried in the attached image, placed the mask OUTSIDE the image, used feather, and the image is still feathering. Why Adobe -_-

Turns out, turning off linear compositing in sequence settings fixes this. Not sure if I explained it properly maybe why you say it's normal but when feathering a mask, the layer shouldn't be getting feathered nowhere near the mask.

Anyway! This fixes it

In the Effect Controls tab, expend the Mask Feather parameter and change it to zero.

Or, click and drag the feather control back toward the mask.

Normal mask feathering behavior goes both in and out from the mask boundaries and that hasn't changed at all. So there's no weird new behavior.

 

It does make a huge visual difference whether you place the mask on the lower or upper track affected. As always.

It's not normal haha, the feathering is affecting so far away from the mask boundries.... This is very weird behaviour. Mainly as I've been doing this effect for a long time and I've never had this problem before

Thank you good man for posting the solution once you found it. Not all heroes wear capes. Just had the same issue, turning off linear compositing indeed helps. I don't think anyone alse understood what was the issue.

You can also try turning off the GPU accelerator, this is a huge pain in the ass though for obvious reasons, but check to see if that makes a difference 🙂

I have run into this on countless projects and the linear compositioning toggle doesn't fix it. It always happens on the right side of whatever I am masking. See screenshot, the feather is WAY closer on the left but the right side is feathered despite the mask box being nearly out of the frame.
