puppet tool creating jagged lines when used with rotation or position

Hi there,

I seem to have some troubles with the puppet tool when used together with other settings,
In CS6 it's working fine on imported layers to mix with rotation or positioning but if I try to use it with shape layers it's creating a jagged line.
The same thing happens when I use it in CC but both on shape layers and on imported files, does this sound familiar? does anybody have a solution to this problem?

Thanks so much in advance!

Emma

Check Mesh settings under Puppet panel on your layers. Triangles and Expansion settings help sometimes , anyway it's crazy sometimes, sometimes I have the same situations.

in addition to the good answer above, try moving your puppet points a bit, experiment.

The Puppet tool is intended to be used on bitmap layers ONLY. You're trying to use it on a shape layer -- shape layers are vector layers. No good.

If you want to keep using the shape layer, you have to precomp it... which may change a few plans you had for the project.
