I'm loving this tutorial, but I am having issues. I was wondering why my background keeps cropping and bugging out when I apply the crop at the end from natural resolution down to 1920x1080? I have attached a link to a test render on Vimeo (password is: lowepost).

Does this occur during playback, or just when rendering? Does this happen without the Crop? 

I've seen this behavior before - if I remember correctly, I deleted to tool to which the motion tracking data was applied and recreated that section of the network.

It happened in both playback and rendering. What I did to fix it was this, I went to the crop node after the dreamstime background file and clicked "reset size". I also re-did the entire background section of the node network and it fixed it.

 

Thank you for the quick reply!
