Dangle effect with separated shape layers
on Aug 4, 2016 at 4:02:48 pm

Hello All,

I have an AE project in which there is supposed to be a light bulb on a chain that clicks on with a pulling action. The only part seen is afterward when both the pull chain and lightbulb dangle after the pull. I have tried puppet pin tool, but it doesn't work as the chain is represented from multiple shape layers (see picture). I was wondering if anyone else had this problem or a solution.



Thanks!

I believe you could precomp the chain for puppet pin use. May want to crop the precomp pretty close (adjust the comp size).
