This may sound stupid, but when I have a curved vertex on the mask there are the two "handles" on either side that I can adjust. But the problem is that what I do with one handle affects the handle on the other side and vice versa. It seems to behave like one big handle that goes through the vertex's center. How can I adjust each of the the "handles" attached to the curved vertex so that can be manipulated independently of each other? I've done it before, but it seems only by accident.

thanks everyone,

Yeah, doing that and dragging it seemed to "unlock" the handle bars for me. Thanks, man. Now I can get back to my crappy job.

thanks to everyone,
