    yes, you copy/paste your black "Saber layer" onto your unchanged .flm file, then change the layer to "screen" and the sabers will appear where they are supposed to be... just like the tutorial says...

    When you paste the sabers onto the flm file does it paste all of the sabers or only half of them? In other words, is it only after you've saved the flm file and opened it up back in Premiere that you notice only half of the sabers are there?

    If the problem occured during the pasting, perhaps you need more memory for greater copy/paste ability.

    Hmmmm. Strange problem.

    Do the *.flm and the roto'ed one have the same resolution?

    Here's what I do:

    I open the *.flm in PS. Do the sabers. Flatten. Select >> All. Edit >> Copy. Open the original *.flm, or make another of the EXACT SAME LENGTH. Open that one in PS. Edit >> Paste. Layer >> Flatten. Save as... *.flm!
