Håvard Andestad LangmoenPuppet pins doesnt follow masks

After reading some posts regarding puppet pins, I'm afraid this is a hopeless case, but I give it a try just in case someone has a clever solution.

My problem is that I'm animating a photo split up in layers in photoshop using puppet pins. To not have an overwhelming amount of layers, I've splitted some of the layers into several masks so that the puppet pins only affects the pixels within the seperate masks. But then I figured I had to edit some of the layers and make the whole photoshop canvas bigger. This resulted in the masks being misplaced according to their original positions.

And I thought it would be an easy fix. Move the masks to where they're supposed to and problem solved! But no … The puppet pins doesn't follow the mask when it moves, thus making everything so much more difficult.

Does this mean I have to do all the puppet pin animation over again?(Or copy each pins keyframes into new pins.)

Please say no …
