Hi everyone, I have a problem using the puppet tool.
When I import my character from AI and I use the puppet tool pins on hand feet, etc. and I try to moove the right hand, it always keeps that hand in the back of the body and I'm unable to bring it to front.

In other words, I cannot, in any way, bring to front that particular element(hand) when animating. I positioned the layer accordingly and it just wont moove to front.

Can someone please let me know if I'm missing something? Thank you!

If you have done anything -- and I mean ANYTHING -- to alter the imported layers, the Puppet Tool will not work properly. It can be the ONLY thing on a layer.

If you need to alter a layer, you must do it in a nested comp. Then you apply the Puppet Tool to that nested comp.

Puppet Overlap tool

Use this tool to place Overlap pins, which indicate which parts of an image should appear in front of others when distortion causes parts of the image to overlap one another.
