I recently had the problem of having to mask (rotoscope) some footage in the movie clip editor and render out some elements to put in there. For rendering those 3D elements, I wanted to use the filmic preset, but this gave me the problem that my masks when used in the compositor via the Input - Mask node weren't #FFFFFF anymore (as set in the mask editor), but a darker shade of white, which makes them a tad transparent. Is there a way to prevent this (except turning their brightness up again via more nodes)?

    $\begingroup$ Could you post some screenshots of how you're using the masks? Filmic is applied at the end of the composite chain and shouldn't affect individual mask operations within the compositor $\endgroup$
