Hi PRgraphist,

Yes it's possible. As you've discovered, PA maps the entire image or movie across the front face of the puzzle piece. So, you need to crop the main movie to reveal only the relevant parts for each piece.

The easiest way is to use ProAnimator as an AE plug-in. Then, put the full-sized movie into five smaller precomps. Each one the proper size for one of the puzzle pieces. The smaller precomps essentially crop the movie for you, but give you flexibility to move the movie around to properly position it.

Does this help?

Jon

I already on AE. I think something like your recomendation, but it seem a little diffucult to match all piece maps for compose the Image correctly. I try this anyway. Lets see what happen

Hi,

What's very important is to keep the proper aspect ratio for your comps to match those of your objects.
Click on each puzzle part in Illustrator and read in the "Transform" window the size of your object. Then you can translate the values to create your comps.

If you get stuck let me know what aspect ratio your movie has and send me the puzzle ai file for a mini tutorial.

!!!!!BINGO!!!!!. I do it. My problem was the object in AI was a little rotation, for that reason the maps do not match, I put it in the correct position and !!VOILA!!, the puzzle are perfect. Thanks Jon & Serge for you help
