Try purging your image caches - Edit Purge Image Cache. If the issue still persists, then purge Memoru & Cache. BTW, have you updated your copy of AE CC to the current version HTH RoRK Intensive mocha

Re: Stabilization - incorporating barrel distortion
by Chris Buttacoli 9 years ago
I believe the common practice is to take the distortion out first, then stabilize, then add the distortion back. AE has a lens distortion correction effect - I wouldn't think cornerpinning would work

by Philip Johns 9 years ago
Never mind, I sorted it out... I was saving the file in Illustrator as CMYK, not RGB - AE doesn't like that. In Illustrator I went File Document Color Mode RGB Color. Now all colors match perfectly in
