I'm doing an animation with the puppet pin tool. But after setting the pins I would like to change the original position of a set pin.

In stead of deleting it and put a new one on the right spot, I just want to move it to a slightly different position on the layer.

Is it possible to do this?

Puppet pin is still in it's infancy. You can "paint" the area a pin controls though. Perhaps the solution is somewhere in that.

Hi there,

the only way to do this is to copy the keframes for the pin you want to move, then delete the pin. Create a new pin where you want it to be and then paste the old keyframes into the new pin. this way it will animate the same points but using a new "source position.

hope this helps :-)
