Puppet tool points missing

Hi.

I've got a comp with a PNG that I was animating with the puppet tool. After a bunch of keyframes I had the idea of changing the composition frame rate to 24 instead of 30. Well, I don't know if that had anything to do with what happened but all the sudden my puppet points on the PNG are gone. I still have the keyframes on the timeline buy if I play it, I get no animation.
Maybe it was something that I pressed by mistake? All the puppet points in the layer list are grayed out. Does anyone know how to correct this?


Thank you.

Start over again. Pick the final frame rate. Happiness ensues.

There are some things you simply must decide upon before you begin a project. The frame rate is one of them.

I simply added a new pin and that was enough to reset the animation. Not sure if this is a new feature and was not available back when you posted.

A good rule of thumb in After Effects when you run into the problem of things not working after you make necessary unforeseen changes, and you are in to deep to start over, is simply to try to "force" the effect to recalculate. This could be by changing a parameter slightly, changing the seed, adding a point.. etc.
