Hello, I occasionally make some animations in Adobe After Effects using the puppet tool. I use Photoshop to cut out the layers and use Adobe After Effects' puppet tool to move the characters.

Mesh expansion and/or resolution (number of triangles) is inadequate for the purpose. Turn on mesh so you can see it and then adjust expansion and triangles until the mesh covers the cut-out character in full. These options are right in the tool bar next to the puppet pin tool when it is active.
