    Can someone help me out? I'm really frustrated with a shot I'm working on.

    I laid out 12 polaroid pictures in a grid and shot video of that. Then brought that shot into AE and drew 12 masks around the image area. From there, Ive imported a self contained QT movie or some other video in which I've placed inside one of the polaroids.

    Ive scaled and lined it all up and everything is great. But after duping the video footage a number of times and arranging them into the separate polaroids, the video has frozen. Now when I scrub through the timeline its like they stick as images instead of video. What the hell is going on and why did it do this??? eerrrrrr....
