I am looking for a way to animate the points of a shape seperately, i.e. getting a seperate timeline for every point like in the puppet tool.

there is a script that will allow you to connect mask vertices to a point property (like position of another layer, or a point expression control).

you could then create the position animation of a layer (probably a null) or of a point expression control, then use the script to have a vertex do the same animation.

what the script will do i create keyframed movement every frame that follows the movement of the point property. if you modify the point property, you'll need to run the script again....

you can get the script here:
