Re: After Effects From The Ground Up: Chapter 1.6

Hi- I'm using AE CS6. At @9:45 in the video, Kevin selects 4 vertices, and the keyframes at 3 secs instantly turn gray. Then he moves the mask and instantly a second pair of keyframes are created at 1 sec., where the timeline cursor rests. When I select the same 4 vertices, the key frames at 3 secs. remain gold. When I pull the mask to the new position no new keyframes are created. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
