Can you make a garbage matte start and end wherever you want it to?

It starts at the end and beginning of the movie and I can't get it to start or end anywhere else.

No, but you can animate it to be completely off your canvas when you like, then put it back on it at the frame you chose as the 'start' of the garbage matte.

Yes you can! Using Transparency you can make it appear when you want

Go one frame back before you want the garbage matte to start and turn Transparency to Zero and make sure the next frame (The frame you want it to appear on) is 100 percent Transparency.

Hope i helped! or you can take it off you canvas completely but that might mess up the animation
