I've been having this issue where my opacity mask doesn't align and it becomes a nightmare when I jump ahead on the timeline because the mask just keeps moving further and further away from the blue outline. Sometimes the lines align perfectly, but then other times it's just awful.Screenshot 2020-09-18 080040.png

Make sure your windows OS scaling is set to 100% or 150. 125 tends to give issues.

Checked the scaling, its 100%, all masks are not align. its impossible to keyframe those. Using PP 14.4.0 (Build 38).

Another essential feature is a complete mess ...

Yep, my scaling is on 100% and that didn't fix the issue

For everybody: Make sure that the video you are masking isn't on V1, it has to be above. Had the same issue until I moved it upwards

Hey I was having the same problem. Try going into sequence settings and changing the pixel aspect ratio to square pixels

Sometimes in Effcts Control Panel if the Highlight is left on the Opacity parameter, and another clip subsequently selected ~ the previous clip's parameters can inadvertently get adjusted when opacity isn't deselected...

This is caused by pixel aspect ratio varying between the video media and sequence settings. If the timeline is anamorphic 1.333, and media is square pixels, it will cause this issue by interpreting the pixels differently between media/sequence. Fix by matching the sequence settings to the codec or, if editing with multiple codecs, you can nest the problematic clip and then apply your mask to the new nested clip.

 

Pictures attached in order to illustrate before and after.
