When I'm trying to use a brush on a layer mask and the selection tool it does not work right. I've included screen shots. One is trying to use the brush tool over her face and the result is the jagged edges and areas I did not select along with what the mask layer looks like after. Also what the selection tool looks like when I try to select the grass and the babie's body.

Korrin,
This looks like a tiling issue.  Can you please try enabling Preferences -> Performance -> Legacy Compositing and let us know if that helped?

I saw there was an update this morning, completed it a few minutes ago and now things are working fine. I will keep this in mind if it happens in the future!
