Do most AE animators continuously rasterize?
on Jan 16, 2016 at 5:25:21 am

I've been watching a lot of tutorials where animators use the puppet pin tool to bend their characters. This doesn't work if you turn on continuously rasterize, so I haven't seen anyone use that setting. Is this good practice, or are there better ways to bend an image that will allow you to continuously rasterize vectors?

The Puppet Tool can be the. ONLY thing applied to a layer. If you need to change the size of the layer, do it in a nested comp.

I've got a 2d character who is looking up. Her head rotates upward, and I've got her hair parented to her head. I would like to be able to jiggle her hair a little bit with the puppet pin tool, but the only way I'm able to is if I keep 'continuously rasterize "off, even though there isn't anything else applied to the hair layer.

..including any transform property modifications... scale, position, rotation, etc?

Yep. It's just a layer parented to the head, with only the puppet pin effect. No transformations, and no camera effects are used either. Works fine until I turn on 'continuously rasterize'.

Sorry, I must have mislead you. You can't do continuously rasterize and use the puppet tool. Using continuously rasterize counts as applying something to a layer in my book, but perhaps not yours.

Ok, thank you. Sorry for the confusion, still getting the hang of AE.
