Puppet pin and position?

Hi Gang!

Please forgive my newbie question.

How to you change position shape that you altered with the puppet tool? Seems like the puppet pins pin the shape to the canvas and changing the position becomes impossible.

thanks!!!!

Do you want to change the position so it animates from the last position or you don't like where you put the position and want to change it location?

Stephen -

Thanks for the reply!! I wanted to to change its position after I animate it with the pins. To explain it better, I have a vertical bar with three pins top-mid-bottom.
1. I animated the middle pin so now the bar is bent in the middle
2. As it is now (bent) I would like to change its position.

Now that I am thinking, precomping would solve this, right?

thanks!!

If the Pins and the bar are separate layers then yes you need to precomp them together.
