Render of still implements masking differently .png export

Is there some reason why a Render with Ctrl-R of a still to a ping image could be any different than the sequence of images using Export Animation - PNG?

I have some masking of a video by a vector layer. It looks right in the still render, but the export animation of a sequence of stills loses the underlying image for each frame. All I see is the vector layer which should be invisible.

The problem was when an imported .AVI file was being masked, only the mask was shown. The .avi file did not appear.

Without the mask, the .avi file appeared. Rendering just the frame with control R rendered correctly. Export Animation as JPG or PNG renders incorrectly.

For now I just manually rendered scenes and exported from there.

Just thought i'd share what could be a bug. Then again, could be operator error :oops:
