Hey Guys,

I'm trying to learn rigging and liquify so I can make things like is seen in the Intro to the League of legends game.

Anyway, currently when I try to get my puppet pin to follow the null I made, it tracks it, but the position goes WAY off to the right for some reason. I am a super noob in after effects, but I'm pretty sure I did it right. Can someone check this to see what I did wrong? I can provide additional details if needed

Here's a video of me showing the problem.







Thank you!

You're dealing with two different sets of coordinates, and they don't match. the Puppet Pin goes by the horizontal & vertical coordinates of the LAYER, but a null uses the coordinates of the COMP.

You have two alternatives: forget using the null or precompose the character. Of the two, blowing off the null poses far fewer problems.

you can use a script for rigging your puppet to nulls.

Duik does this for free.
